There will be grief, infinite and untold, for those who walk into Marlins Park on Monday. For those who walk past the makeshift memorials already lining the ballpark. For those who remember Jose Fernandez with their words, their stories, and those who do so with their silence, their deference.

Five sports stadiums that should be renamed

What’s in a stadium name? For the past two decades, usually millions of sponsorship dollars, self-created nicknames no one uses and some hubris when a shady company goes belly-up in the name of fraud.
