U2 may force Marlins to move series

Posted on: September 15, 2010 11:23 am
The Marlins still haven't found what they're looking for -- but may end up in Vancouver for a June 24-26 series against the Mariners next season because of a June 29 U2 concert, the Sun Sentinel 's Juan C. Rodriguez reports .

The Marlins played a series against the Mets in Puerto Rico this season, but because both the Marlins and Mariners have games on the West Coast following the series, it would make travel tough, especially considering the Mariners don't have a travel day before hosting the Braves on June 27. The Marlins are off on the 27, but play in Oakland on the 28th.

Rodriguez says the team is considering BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, a domed stadium built to attract a major league team, that is the current home of the British Columbia Lions of the CFL.

The Marlins could still play another series at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan.
