The Miami music producer and his wife, Nicole Tuck, rented Marlins Park on Saturday for his son Asahd’s second birthday, and turned the 36,000-seat baseball stadium into a carnival. Instead of bases and a pitching mound, the stadium floor included a chair swing ride, a Ferris wheel, games and even a petting zoo, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

“Although his actual bday is OCT 23rd we started early,’’Khaled wrote on Twitter, including videos of the event at Marlins Park. “ASAHD had the whole stadium!!”

About 150 inner city kids and members of local Boys and Girls Clubs and Connecting Families joined the family at the party, EOnline reported. 

The party also served as the official launch for Asahd’s charity program, called Asahd’s Initiative -- which is part of Khaled’s We The Best Foundation.

Guests included Marlins owner Derek Jeter and Yo Gotti. Jeter presented a $100,000 check from the Marlins to Khaled’s We The Best Foundation.

It was a festive day for the Asahd and his family, and perked up the normally staid Marlins ballpark. The Marlins had the lowest average attendance in the major leagues in 2018, drawing 811,104 fans for an average of 10,013 per game, ESPN reported.
