Game Day Info:
First Pitch: 5 PM
Venue: Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field, Coral Gables, Florida (Capacity: 5,000)
This weekend's series will take place at one of the most beautiful stadiums in the entire ACC. The home of Hurricanes baseball since 1973, with an average of 2,600 fans per home game, it provides Miami with a unique home field advantage in South Florida. It's a natural grass field, and it's something we'll talk more at length about later on.
The stadium is named for Mark Light, the son of benefactor George Light, who donated money for the field's construction. George named the stadium in honor of his son, who passed away from muscular dystrophy.
That's a great story and an offsetting factor considering the field is named after the guy who donated nearly $4 million to renovate it from 2007 through 2009 - New York Yankees third baseman/designated hitter Alex Rodriguez.
