Miami Marlins Home Run Sculpture Video Leaks; Everyone Pukes

Less than two weeks after we found out the Miami Marlins were testing their new aquarium backstop/aquatic nightmare tank by throwing baseballs at it, a video of their long-mocked home-run sculpture in action has made its way to YouTube -- and it looks even worse than the pictures.

The thing looks like what happens when you ask a coked-up pastry chef to make you a slot machine cake. We can only hope it's not a hitter's park.

Even Marlins players have voiced their skepticism of the gigantic left-field sculpture, particularly in relation to its potential to distract left-handed batters.

"If it is an issue, it can no longer be there," Greg Dobbs told the Miami Herald earlier this month. "I won't be the only left-handed hitter saying something. If other teams have a problem with it, they're definitely going to voice their concern to the league."

Since any further information would just be more mean comments, here's the video.
