M's return home for road series vs. Marlins
Thursday, June 23, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) -- Preparations for U2's concert at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Wednesday night forced the Marlins' three-game series with the Mariners this weekend to be shifted to Seattle.
It's the second time in two years a team has played as a road team in their home stadium in interleague play. Last year, Commissioner Bud Selig moved a scheduled home series for the Toronto Blue Jays to Philadelphia due to security concerns around the G20 Summit that was being held near the stadium in Toronto.
Florida catcher John Buck was a member of the Blue Jays at the time and said it was odd having to play home games in their opponent's ballpark.
