As TS Arthur churned, Phillies and Marlins went about their work

Just a couple of years ago, the Tropical Storm that popped up just east of Miami would have played a major role in baseball that was trying to be played at the Marlins old stadium called Sun Life Stadium.

If you remember, in the summer heat, sweat would be pouring out of pitchers on the mound down there just about every start. In fact, Roy Halladay, who pitched a no-hitter there, also got very sick from the heat on a different start down in Miami before the team moved to the new stadium called Marlins Park.

Now baseball plays on thanks to the new stadium and it's retractable roof all that sweating and inclement weather affecting games are a thing of the past. In years past, this storm surely would have led to a couple rainouts but not now with the new Marlins Park.
