Marlins giving away season tickets if you can homer

By: Andy Slater

If you have home-run power, you'll also have free Miami Marlins season tickets for 2017.

While MLB's Home Run Derby is happening in San Diego, the Marlins are holding their own "Swing For Your Seats" contest at Marlins Park. 

The Marlins say anyone who places a $250 deposit on a season ticket plan will be able to participate in the event on July 11. 

Those who aren't lucky enough to set off the home-run sculpture will still be able to enjoy complimentary food and beverages while watching the MLB All-Star festivities on the Marlins' big screen.

For more information on the event, contact the Marlins at 305-480-2521 or via email at

Marlins Park will host the All-Star game in 2017.
