The Miami Marlins were the talk of baseball on Sunday after pitcher Henderson Alvarez closed out the woeful 2013 season with a bang, throwing the fifth no-hitter in team history. On Monday, they announced that fans who could not attend will be able to purchase remaining unsold tickets from the game.
Tickets went on sale Monday, and will be available until Sunday, Oct. 6 at midnight. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased on the Marlins' team website as well as the Marlins Team Store located at Marlins Park.
Like most Marlins games there were thousands of unsold tickets to Alvarez' gem. Official attendance for the game was 28,315, leaving roughly 9,100 unsold tickets. The crowd was actually the fourth-largest of the season for the Marlins, who were last in the National League in attendance.
This is not the first time the Marlins made up for sparse attendance at a no hitter by selling unused tickets the day after. They did the exact same thing in 2010 after Roy Halladay of the Phillies threw a no hitter at Sun Life Stadium.
And no hitter ticket stubs can be a valuable commodity. Ticket stubs to Johan Santana's 2012 no hitter at Citi Field sold for over $100 on eBay last summer.
