The Wilmington Blue Rocks made headlines for selling some of the cheapest tickets in baseball history on Monday, discounting regular prices by 99 percent.
The Blue Rocks are the Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The team offered fans the chance to get tickets to Opening Day for the same number, in cents, as the temperature at 8 a.m. ET.
The temperature in Wilmington was four degrees Fahrenheit at the time.
"It's really cold here, and we want to get the fans thinking about us," said Stefani Rash, the team's director of tickets.
Fans had three ways to get $.04 tickets to Opening Day -- an April 16 matchup against the Frederick Keys. They could show up in person, call the box office or order online. Orders by phone and the Web, however, were charged a $5 handling fee.
Rash said the team sold about 3,600 Opening Day seats, and more than 200 fans took advantage of the chance to buy up to eight tickets for 32 cents total.
