The Miami Marlins could’ve ended their pretty horrendous season on a positive note, but being the Miami Marlins, they chose not to.
Henderson Alvarez tossed a no-hitter in the final game of the season, and the feat was made even more remarkable when the Marlins won on a walk-off wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth. It was an awesomely bizarre ending to cap off Miami’s 2013 campaign, but the Marlins aren’t done selling tickets to the game just yet.
The team announced they will be selling unsold tickets from the historic game for a bargain price. According to a team press release, the Marlins are offering fans who were unable to attend the game the opportunity to purchase the remaining unsold tickets from Sunday’s game. Tickets went on sale Monday and will be available until Sunday, Oct. 6 at midnight. The 9,100 remaining tickets are being sold starting at $15 with the majority of tickets available at the Vista Level.
Can’t beat Vista Level seats for a game you won’t actually be going to.
While it is easy to bash the Marlins for coming up with yet another money-making scheme, they are far from the first club to sell tickets to commemorate a past game. The Rays, White Sox and Mets have all done so in recent years, but given the Marlins history with head-scratching promotions, it seems only logical to pass some extra judgment on the team.
