After fans exited game six of the NBA Finals before an exciting comeback win on Wednesday night, the Fort Myers Miracle want to take the "Heat" off Miami basketball fans with a chance at redemption.The Miracle are offering a "Big Three" deal for Miami fans that come to Thursday night's game against the Jupiter Hammerheads at Hammond Stadium. Fans wearing Heat gear will get a $3 ticket, but must enter the ballpark through the exit gates. To get the $3 deal, Heat fans must stay through the entire nine innings on a Thirsty Thursday.
