Could MLB be pulling out of the attendance malaise? Maybe.
While not earth-shattering, ballparks across MLB were filled to nearly 60 percent of capacity on Thurs. (57%), a decent showing considering there were 3 day games, and interleague starts today. Especially impressive was Astros-Cardinals game from Busch Stadium which had a 1:45pm game start and drew 36,409, or 83 percent of capacity.
Still, there were some serious laggards.
Topping the list of poorly attended games was Tampa Bay at Toronto. Pulling in 12,590, or just 25 percent of Roger Centre’s capacity, it was the worst by capacity game of the day.
The worst attended game goes to the Rangers at the Royals, or 12,137 paid attendance.
Below are the numbers and notes from Thursday’s games:
Play-Fan Photo. Won 6th straight
Free Hot Dog, Daygame
FG Fly Swatter, Daygame
Total over 15 games
Sell-Thru = Percentage of capacity
