Marlins Selling Tickets To Sunday’s No-Hitter
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Believe it or not, there is still a Major League Baseball team selling tickets for the 2013 regular season and wouldn’t you know it’s the Miami Marlins.
The Marlins announced Monday that it would sell roughly 9,100 remaining tickets to the final game of the season which saw Henderson Alavarez throw a no-hitter.
The Marlins said the unused tickets will remain on sale through October 6 and are being sold with a starting price of $15 per ticket.
It’s not the first time the Marlins have tried this. A few years ago, the Marlins sold excess tickets to a perfect game thrown by the Philadelphia Phillies.
However, there’s a big difference, historically speaking, between a perfect game and a no-hitter.
In MLB history, there’s been a total of 23 perfect games have been thrown in Major League Baseball. For comparison, there have been 282 no-hitters thrown in Major League Baseball history.
