Miami Marlins Finally Agree to Remove Insane Home Run Sculpture From Outfield

The Miami Marlins' home run sculpture is outta here.

The team has received permission from Miami-Dade County to move the sculpture to the plaza outside Marlins Park, according to Douglas Hanks of the Miami Herald. The vote was a victory for Marlins CEO Derek Jeter, who can now remove from the ballpark one reminder of unpopular previous owner Jeffrey Loria's regime.

So - just to be sure this is sinking in - the Marlins are reportedly agreeing to pay $2.5 million to move a home run statue if the artist opts to remove his name from it, and this presumably does not account for costs of, you know, physically moving a seven-story work of art. The artwork, which has been located beyond the center field fence, will be replaced by a tiered standing room-only area for spectators.

It will still go off after every home run, as well as at 3:05 p.m. every day and after every Marlins win. Only 53 of them came at Marlins Park.

"We appreciate the support and collaboration for our proposal from the county and the Art in Public Places trust", the Marlins said in a statement.
