Marlins Park, the home of the Miami Marlins, will soon have a very different look.

In January, Jeter hosted stadium tours for Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Gimenez - during which, . "But they also realize it's massive and it's integrated into the fabric of the ballpark".

"That's a topic of passion when it comes to Marlins fans", Jeter said.
