The Florida Marlins called to say information sent in a release this afternoon that Miami Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football Operations Bill Parcells would be conducting the ballpark "countdown teardown" on Sunday was inaccurate. It's Billy the Marlin who will be doing the number teardown honors after the fifth inning of Sunday's Marlins-Colorado Rockies game at Land Shark Stadium.
The countdown teardown board is on the left field wall at the stadium. It counts down the number of home games until the Marlins' new ballpark opens, scheduled in 2012. The team is calling on celebrities, fans and current and former players to pull down the numbers.
