A crowd of 28,315 was on hand to witness Miami Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez throw the franchise’s fifth no-hitter, against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Alvarez became only the fourth pitcher since 1900 to throw a no-hitter on the final day of the season, which became official after a wild pitch scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

In an otherwise dismal season, in which the team finished 62-100, those who did not get to witness Alvarez’s gem can now become a part of history…or at least lie about having seen the game.

The Marlins announced Monday that fans will be able to purchase the 9,100 unsold tickets from Sunday’s game. The tickets will be on sale through October 6, starting at $15.
