Remember how the Marlins planned to cynically capitalize on Roy Halladay’s perfect game by printing up and selling tickets to the thing after it happened? Well, they went ahead and did it, and according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, they have sold 10,332 of the bad boys so far.
While the Marlins’ stated attendance is in the 18,000 per game range, I’m guessing actual clicks of the turnstile are way, way lower. I don’t know how to get that number, but I’d be willing to wager that they’ve sold tickets to more people for the Halladay game after it ended than they’ve had warm bodies show up for dozens of actual home games this year.
