Omar Infante Activates Marlins Home Run Structure

The Miami Marlins built a giant structure in center field that will activate and go off whenever a Marlins player hits a home run. Until just moments ago, the structure hadn't gone off except for pre-game testing. Well, Marlins second baseman Omar Infante was the first player to activate the new home run structure and sent the giant mechanical marlins and flamingos into a frenzy.

Thanks to Yahoo! Big League Stew and Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald grabbed footage of it finally going off. Hit the jump to see the video.

The footage of the actual home run isn't capture, but the structure in all of it's terrible glory is.

Yep, it's still ridiculous.
