Marlins Selling Unused Tickets to Henderson Alvarez No-Hitter

Mears

The season is over but the Miami Marlins are still selling tickets.  The club is hoping to cash in on the buzz over one of the more unusual no-hitters in big league history by selling its supply of unused tickets from Sunday’s game.

Marlins Pitcher Henderson Alvarez made history by tossing the fifth no-hitter in franchise. He pitched nine innings against the Tigers,  then had to hope for a run in the bottom of the ninth in what had been a scoreless game.  A wild pitch brought the winning run home for Miami and Alvarez had tossed the first no-hitter at Marlins Park.

Over 28,000 fans were there in person for the final regular season game, according to the Marlins.

Tickets  will be available until Sunday, October 6 at midnight. The 9,100 remaining tickets are being sold starting at $15 with the majority of tickets available at the Vista Level.

One enterprising eBay seller managed to snare an Alvarez autograph on the back of a ticket from the no-hitter.

Alvarez’s no-hitter is the fourth since the start of 1900 to be thrown on the final day of the regular season.
