Marlins Pitcher Henderson Alvarez made history on Sunday by tossing the fifth no-hitter in franchise history and the first no-hitter at Marlins Park. The Marlins are offering fans who were unable to attend the game the opportunity to purchase the remaining unsold tickets from yesterday’s game. The tickets can be bought at marlins.com/alvareznono and the Marlins Team Store located at Marlins Park.
Tickets went on sale today and will be available until Sunday, October 6th at midnight. The 9,100 remaining tickets are being sold starting at $15 with the majority of tickets available at the Vista Level.
A crowd of 28,315 was at Marlins Park for Closing Day and witnessed Alvarez pitch the historic game, beating the Detroit Tigers 1-0. Alvarez’s no-hitter is the fourth since the start of 1900 to be thrown on the final day of the regular season. – Marlins.com press release, 9/30/2013
According to The Sporting News, the tickets in question aren’t even hard ducats. The Marlins want you to pay $15 for a fucking PDF (with the wrong date listed). These PDF’s are an even poorer excuse for a real ticket than Jay Mariotti’s PDF pamphlet about how he doesn’t beat up his dates can be consider a book (links courtesy Baseball Think Factory)
