Florida law would turn its publicly funded ballparks and stadiums into homeless shelters

Could the new Marlins ballpark or the Tampa Bay Rays' Tropicana Field serve as a homeless shelter for the 270 or so nights a year that they're not used for baseball?
If two Florida lawmakers have their way, they might. As reported by the Miami Herald, state legislators have unearthed an obscure law that has not been enforced since it was adopted in 1988. It states that any ballpark or stadium that receives taxpayer money shall serve as a homeless shelter on the dates that it is not in use.

why not let homeless use them? is this obvious discrimination?
I see two major issues with this proposal:
1. Do the homeless have a quality pitching staff? And,
2. Will they be paid in parity with the Miami Marlins players?
This points out the obvious flaw with government spending.
But liberals will say "what a great idea".
