Florida: (NL): The team is currently in discussions with the state and local governments involving financing for a new retractable-roofed ballpark for the Marlins. Preliminary plans call for a $325 million, 38,000-seat ballpark to be built in Miami-Dade County. Miami-Dade County has reportedly promised $73 million in tourist taxes to the project and the team has committed $137 million, leaving the plan $115 million short. No realistic timetable has been set forth but the earliest home opener would likely be no earlier than April 2007. NBA BASKETBALL
