NationalsWith their 14-2 shellacking by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, the Washington Nationals were on the edge of another 100 loss season Weds night before pulling together a rally in the 9th to claim a 5-4 win over the Dodgers.

And while the Nationals now have more losses than they did last season, the club is also set to see lower attendance in the second year of their new stadium, Nationals Park.

The Nationals, who currently rank 24th in league attendance, will see a decline of just under 27 percent (26.92%), based upon the current per game average of 22,623. With 7 home games left on their schedule, the Nationals are projected to have a total attendance of 1,809,865.

Looking at stadiums constructed in the “Camden Yard era” a period of growth for new stadiums in MLB technically beginning with what is now U.S. Cellular Field in 1991, and adding in expansion clubs (Rays, Marlins, D-Backs, Rockies), the Nationals are projected to have the third lowest attendance figure for a club in their second year of a new stadium behind only the Pirates (1,784,988 in 2002) and the Rays (1,562,827 in 1999).

In terms of the percentage of decline from first to second year of a new stadium, the Nationals see the 7th largest decline at 26.92 percent, just barely edging out the Tigers at 26.93 percent for their decline from 2000 to 2001 at what is now Comerica Park. The Tigers are followed by the Pirates (38.09 percent from 2001 to 2002 in PNC Park), Brewers (42.75 percent from 2001 to 2002 in Miller Park), the Rangers (44.05 percent decline from 1994 to 1995 at the Ballpark at Arlington), Marlins (58.19 decline from 1993 to 1994 in what was is now Landshark Stadium), and finally the then Devil Rays (60.37 percent decline from 1998 to 1999 in Tropicana Field).

Outlining that fans love that “new stadium smell”, of the 20 stadiums opened during the Camden era, 15 of them see attendance declines, with only one of them (Busch III) seeing an increase in attendance while posting a losing season (an increase of 4.08% in 2007, the year after winning the World Series while posting 78-84 record). The largest increase the comes by way of the Seattle Mariners in 2001, the second full year Safeco Field was open. The M’s saw attendance go from 2,914,624 in 2000 to 3,507,326 in 2001, an increase of 16.90 percent. That year they posted what is still the highest regular season win total in the history of the league: 116. As the saying goes in sports business, “Winning cures all ills.”

Below is a breakdown of stadium attendance for clubs in their second year of a new stadium:
