I don't fully understand the machinations of the sale but it happens sometime today or tonight.
The 2009 Annual Garage Sale will place on Wednesday, September 23 during the Marlins game at the Community Corner (section 149). Fans can shop for a variety of autographed items from current Marlins and former players. There will also be promotional items, framed memorabilia and a variety of game-used equipment offered to baseball fans.
That seems easy enough and then I found this:
9/23/2009 1:00 PM
Florida Marlins Community Foundation
Game ticket needed: Game used items, Marlins collectibles and more available at this annual sale. In-game (gates open until end of 3rd inning)
Like I said, I don't fully understand the process. Does it start at 1:00 p.m. or when the gates normally open? I have no idea. But if you want to go shopping for Marlins stuff, and really, who wouldn't? I recommend you either email or call the Florida Marlins Community Foundation to see exactly how this thing works.
Phone number: 305-623-6497.
Email address: FMCF@flamarlins.com
In about three years they are going to need a new email address when the team becomes the Miami Marlins. But that works for now.
