Marlins selling unused tickets to Henderson Alvarez’s no-hitter

19 Comments

Yesterday the Marlins had an announced attendance of 28,315 for Henderson Alvarez’s wild walk-off no-hitter against the Tigers and today they sent out a press releasing announcing all the unused tickets will be for sale:

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.

It should be noted that other teams have sold unused tickets for no-hitters and other historic events, but for some reason it seems funnier when the Marlins do it.

Rays shortstop prospect Willy Adames took Red Sox starter and 2017 AL Cy Young Award runner-up Chris Sale yard for his first major league home run on Tuesday night. It was his second major league at-bat. The dinger cut the Rays’ deficit to 3-1.

The Rays called Adames up from Triple-A Durham ahead of Tuesday’s game. Adames is the Rays’ No. 2 prospect and No. 22 in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. With Durham, he hit .311/.387/.466 with four home runs and 25 RBI in 173 plate appearances.

Manager Kevin Cash said that Adames is only going to be with the Rays for two or three days while Joey Wendle is on paternity leave, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported. Adames is making his case to stay longer.
