Normally, Marlins Stadium is one of the toughest ball parks to hit a home run ranking 5th toughest in the league. Through August 13, 2019, these are the Top 5 hardest parks to get a ball out of:
- 0.665 HR Rate: Oracle Park – San Francisco, CA
- 0.732 HR Rate: Kauffman Stadium – Kansas City, MO
- 0.782 HR Rate: Busch Stadium – St. Louis, MO
- 0.794 HR Rate: Chase Field – Phoenix, AZ
- 0.806 HR Rate: Marlins Park – Miami, FL
Last night, the Dodgers exploded for 15 runs as Corey Seager, Will Smith, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger and Matt Beaty donated souvenirs to the some of the eight thousand fans in attendance. Let’s not forget AJ Pollock had his chances with his 3 for 3 doubles day, tagging the walls twice and Kyle Garlick coming up two feet short of getting out of the park.
Haven't seen fireworks like this since #OpeningDay
A New Marlins Park Record with 6 Home Runs

That must feel weird when another team owns your park's home run record.

With Will Smith homering twice last night, the Dodgers six bombs were able to break the Marlins Stadium record for most home runs in a game as well as tie the Marlins franchise record for most home runs. If you’re wondering, the Dodgers record for most home runs in a game is 8, which they have done twice. Once against the Brewers in 2002 and next, this year’s opening day fireworks show.
