The name of the Miami Marlins' new ballpark is apparently not changing anytime soon. For now, it'll remain Marlins Park.

Team president David Samson told the team's flagship radio station WAXY that he "didn't want to pressure anyone or myself" into rapidly closing a complex naming-rights deal before the start of the 2012 season.

Samson says the team is "happy to start `Marlins Park' and see what happens." He made the comments Wednesday in his regular weekly appearance.

The team has referred to the building as Marlins Park in press releases since at least Jan. 13.

The first exhibition in the stadium is a high school game scheduled for March 5, followed by Marlins' games against the University of Miami and Florida International on March 6 and 7.
