FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 20, 2013) - After fans exited game six of the NBA Finals before an exciting comeback win on Wednesday night, the Fort Myers Miracle want to take the "Heat" off Miami basketball fans with a chance at redemption.
The Miracle are offering a "Big Three" deal for Miami fans that come to Thursday night's game against the Jupiter Hammerheads at Hammond Stadium. Fans wearing Heat gear will get a $3 ticket, but must enter the ballpark through the exit gates. To get the $3 deal, Heat fans must stay through the entire nine innings on a Thirsty Thursday.
Any attempt to leave the ballpark early will cost Heat fans "good money" and incremental amounts of "good money" will be commensurate with the timing of the fickle Heat fan's exit.
This "spur" of the moment deal is only available on Thursday night at Hammond Stadium. First pitch is slated at 7:05 p.m. and gates, entry and exit, open at 6 p.m. Fans can enjoy half-priced domestic draft beers on Thirsty Thursdays and are encouraged to go the extra mile and stay after the game for the Square 1 Burgers & Bar Thirsty Thursday LIVE Show on the veranda for a chance to win prizes.
For more information, call the Miracle offices at (239) 768-4210.
