The multicolor, mechanical sculpture titled “Homer” will be moved from inside Marlins Park to a planned new “art walk” outside the stadium.
Marlins CEO Derek Jeter had this to say:
The Marlins plan to use the space inside the stadium to create a new multistory, standing-room-only spectator area.
The sculpture will continue to move when a Marlins player hits a homer. It also will move at 3:05 p.m. — Miami’s area code is 305 — on game days, and perhaps after victories.

This thing has been an eye sore since Day 1. Great decision by Jeets
