FILE - In this April 2, 2012 file photo fans watch from the swimming pool at Marlins Park during a spring training baseball game between the Miami Marlins and the New York Yankees in Miami. The Clevelander nightclub at Marlins Park has closed. It included a swimming pool, dancers and DJs, and had been a staple at the ballpark since it opened in 2012. The space will still be accessible to fans with different seating and without the pool, but the bar remains. Marlins Park has undergone a gradual makeover since Derek Jeter's group bought the team in late 2017. Before the 2019 season, Jeter removed the kitschy home run sculpture from the outfield.
