Welcome back to the Greatest Moments in Marlins History. With 138 days until Opening Day let’s take a look at moment 138, which takes us back to March 23, 1992. Even though this is over a year before the Marlins play their first regular season game at Joe Robbie, something very significant happened this day.

On March 23rd 1992 the first ever Florida Marlins tickets went up for sale. With no fans there is no baseball and the way fans are able to come to games is through buying tickets. In 1992 these were the hottest tickets to have. With Marlins selling full season tickets, package plans, and individuals tickets it was a day to be seen. I remember looking at all the people waiting to buy tickets and being amazed at such long lines (from what I remember, but I was 7 at the time everything seemed long to me).
Also looking back at those days the tickets were a pretty good deal. General admission seats were as low as 5 dollars, reserve seating 8-10 dollars, and box seats 16.50-18.50. What great prices! March 23rd 1992 is getting closer to the Marlins playing their first regular season game in Miami. Till next time as always… Let’s Go Marlins!
