Dolphins Draft Party

Dolphins Draft Party
Apr. 21, 2009 (Sun Sentinel delivered by Newstex ) --

The Marlins are moving their Sept. 21 game against the Philadelphia Phillies to July 16 to accommodate a Dolphins-Colts Monday night game.

No such moves are being made to accommodate one of two Dolphins Draft parties scheduled Saturday afternoon. The Dolphins are holding draft parties from 4-8 p.m. Saturday at CityPlace in West Palm Beach and at Dolphin Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Marlins host their second ?Super Saturday of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies with the game starting at 7:10 p.m. Saturday at Dolphin Stadium followed by a post-game fireworks and a concert by Albita.

So, how will the stadium accommodate both events at once ? something officials believe is a first? Dolphins Enterprises spokesman George Torres calls it ?pretty straightforward.

Torres said signs will direct fans attending the free Dolphins draft party at the stadium to enter the stadium grounds at Gates 1 and 7, and the stadium at Gate C ? on the venues north side. The party, which is to feature players, alumni and cheerleaders, will be held on the stadiums club level. Marlins fans, who are charged $10 for parking, enter at other stadium grounds gates and enter the venue on its south side.

The Dolphins first pick of the draft is No. 25 in the first round, meaning it will come late during the draft party. Torres said there will also be tables set up at the draft party where Marlins game tickets will be sold, should Dolphins fans want to stay for that nights Marlins matchup.

?They can stick around and enjoy good Baseball, Torres said, but he added doors to the Baseball side of the stadium will be off-limits, unless fans have tickets to the Marlins game.
