MIAMI (AP) - Slugger Giancarlo Stanton hasn't changed his opinion about spacious Marlins Park. He still considers it a pitcher's park and dislikes the dimensions.
His Miami Marlins teammates are trying mightily to change his mind.
The Marlins begin a six-game homestand Tuesday against Philadelphia with a 17-5 home record, best in the majors. In a ballpark considered unfriendly to hitters, Miami is averaging 5.7 runs per game, second-best in the majors at home.
Stanton's leading the way. He has found the distant fences annoying since the park opened in 2012, but he nonetheless has 31 RBIs at home, the most in the majors. In Miami he has seven homers, a .354 batting average and a 1.166 OPS.
