Although Florida is the traditional home to Major League Baseball's spring training, and nearly 2/3 of all MLB teams still have a spring training presence in the state, Florida did not have a permanent major-league-level professional sports team until the American Football League added the Miami Dolphins in 1966. The state now has three NFL teams, two MLB teams, two NBA teams, and two NHL teams. With two of its most historically-important teams, Florida is one of the most important markets for the Arena Football League. Golf, tennis and auto racing are also popular. Florida also hosts a variety of minor league baseball, football, basketball, ice hockey, soccer, indoor football and rugby union teams.
I can only pray the history of this team and the ownership along with improved attendance and a winning record will convince the powers to be to drop some money into the stadium.its hard to believe we built the stadium in 1987 and it is in that bad of shape to keep a team here in Miami.what is the major issues with the stadium that would cause this team to have to build ,fix or sell?????????? i just dont get itis it politics???????
