MIAMI – The Miami Marlins organization is creating a more inclusive ballpark fan experience with the debut of a new Mamava Nursing Pod presented by Florida Blue and sensory room at loanDepot park. Both new offerings became available for all fans beginning Friday, April 14, when the Marlins defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks to start the club’s second homestand of the season. The Marlins are the second South Florida professional sports organization to offer both services to guests.
“We’re proud to offer these two new inclusive elements to empower our guests and provide an inclusive gameday experience with the Marlins,” said Caroline O’Connor, Marlins President of Business Operations. “During Autism Acceptance Month and throughout the season, we believe Baseball is for everyone and all of our guests should feel comfortable and at ease while enjoying the gameday experience and hope these integrations will further our ability to provide a higher level of customer service capabilities at loanDepot park.”
With Autism Acceptance Month underway, the Marlins will host nonprofit organizations including the Ausome Foundation, UM-NSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, and HAAPE at loanDepot park, to provide them a first look at the two new additions during Friday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Both offerings will permit one family at the time of usage. For more information on the sensory suite and the Mamava Nursing Pod presented by Florida Blue, please visit marlins.com/specialty-rooms.
