Residents near the new Marlins stadium are furious, the Miami Herald said, because of Little Havana’s new gameday parking plan that prohibits residents from parking on some streets during the 81 times a year Miami’s Major League Baseball team steps to the plate.

People who live on those blocks will have to find parking elsewhere to accommodate baseball fans coming to watch the game. The plan designates areas where residents can park, but some residents have already racked up tickets for parking in front of their home.

“We’re asking the residents to make a sacrifice,” Miami Parking Authority Director Art Noriega said. “We can’t leave them parking on some of those streets. The logjam we’ll have on these streets, people won’t be able to get to the games.” [Miami Herald]
