In most cities, Opening Day of the Major League Baseball season is a sacred day. You’d be hard pressed to find cheap tickets anywhere and would need to jump through many hoops to get tickets.
If you’re reading this site, then you’re likely a Miami Marlins fan, and boy do I have some great news for you.
The Marlins franchise has actually posted Opening Day tickets, against the Colorado Rockies starting at $13 on Groupon. The game will be shown on ESPN2, so the Loria and company must be trying their hardest to make sure the blue seats are not too visible to a large national audience.
The main attraction for ESPN2 to be showing a Marlins game on national television is because of their young phenom Jose Fernandez, who will be taking the mound for the seasons first game.
Here is a snippet of what the Groupon Deal offers:
Your seating options?:
"$13 for one ticket in the Vista Level, plus a voucher for the same seating at a game in April or May (a $15 value for the voucher; a $37 total value)$20 for one ticket in the Bullpen Reserved seating area, plus a voucher for the same seating at a game in April or May (a $20 value for the voucher; a $46 total value)$33 for one ticket in the Lexus Legends Level, plus a voucher for the same seating at a game in April or May (a $25 value for the voucher; a $69 total value)"
Essentially, if you attend Opening Day, the Marlins are going to let you comeback and watch another game, free!
I know this is something that can have a lot of fun poked at it, but if you want to watch Jose Fernandez pitch live, there is not likely a better deal out there. If I were in Miami, I’d totally be at this game.
You better act fast, as of the posting of this article, there are only 5 days left to claim your Groupon price for the tickets. As of last night, the Marlins have already sold 660 tickets. At this rate, Giancarlo Stanton‘s first home run may actually land in an area that has fans in it!
