A comparison of the six MLB venues with retractable roofs
Minute Maid Park
* Depending on conditions.
"Minutes" represents the number of minutes it takes to close the roof. "Avg temp" represents the average high daily temperature from April 1-Sept. 30. "Avg precip" represents the average amount of monthly precipitation in inches from April 1-Sept. 30.
So even though the roof at Marlins Park isn't foolproof, at least the team is playing well and keeping the turnstiles spinning in its new home.
