Miami Marlins are selling unused tickets to Henderson Alvarez no-hitter

Sunday afternoon was quite the oddity for the Miami Marlins, though, possibly not as odd as the Marlins selling tickets despite the Major League Baseball season being over.

Let’s set the scene for you.

On the final day of the 2013 Major League Baseball regular season, Miami Marlins starter Henderon Alvarez tossed nine innings of no-hit baseball. All good, right? Well, yes, but unlike most no-hitters, he wasn’t able to celebrate on the mound because the Marlins sub-par offense couldn’t muster a run until the bottom of the ninth inning.

So instead of the on-mound drama, hoping that Alvarez could put away the final batter of the game we instead watched as the Marlins clawed and scratched for a run in the bottom of the ninth to give Alvarez his unconventional no-hitter.

Unfortunately for the Marlins and Alvarez, few were there to see it.

As the second worst team in baseball (at least record wise), the Marlins struggled to sell tickets all season long. They really struggled on the final day of the season, but no worries if you weren’t in attendance and want to pretend you were as the Marlins franchise has you covered.

According to Local 10 in Florida, the Marlins are selling unused tickets to the game at $15 dollars a pop:

The tickets are being sold online and at the Marlins team store.

The cost is $15.

As you’ll recall, the Marlins did this before, though that time they were selling the tickets when they were no-hit by Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies.
