Interesting deal

Marlins Workforce Mondays

The Florida Marlins are providing unemployed South Florida residents the opportunity to take advantage of up to four (4) complimentary tickets to Monday Marlins home games in 2009. Fans simply need to bring their current government-issued unemployment documentation to the Customer Service table located outside Gate H on any Monday home game to receive four (4) complimentary tickets. Stadium gates open at 5:30PM for all 7:10PM Monday home games. The table will close at the beginning of the 2nd inning.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'd imagine it's more of a way to get people interested in the local team in hopes of once they get jobs they come back and pay. Plus it makes the home games look better on tv if you can actually see people in the stadium

I doubt they draw more than 10-15k on weekdays, so this can't hurt. Plus concessions usually aren't free, so I'm sure the organization will come out on top.
Even Denny's when they gave out free grand slams after the super bowl made money from drinks.

terrible idea, this will only lead to bum fights in the left field stands.

Nice idea to drum up attendance for a usually empty stadium.
