1. Tickets are still available at the Marlins Park box office, mlb.com and Stubhub.com. As of Monday afternoon, Stubhub listed its lowest prices at $130, 54 percent cheaper than face value. Because of less demand than recent All-Star games, Tuesday’s All-Star Game is cheaper than any of the past six by a significant margin.

The Marlins, not expecting any Marlins Park lots to have available parking by game time, encourage fans to park in the West Lot Garage in downtown Miami (220 NW Third St. ) for $20 and take a shuttle to Marlins Park.
