Marlins Park Where 1,000 Fans Listen to Themselves Breathe

One local fan enjoys the sound of his whistling echoing around Marlins Park.

A local Miami Marlins fan spent the 9th inning of Wednesday’s Brewers/Marlins battle whistling loudly to hear it echo back at them after bouncing around the park amidst near dead silence.

With the bases loaded in the top of the 9th in a tie game, several fans around the park took the opportunity to see what it would sound like if they made loud intermittent noises to break the monotony.

“The count went full with the game on the line and I thought it would be fun to hear what my echo would sound like if I whistled a little lower than normal,” said one fan. “Maybe tomorrow I’ll bring the kids out to the right field bleachers and see if our squeaking noises echo a lot when the game-winning run is on 3rd base.”
