Rays Draw Just 26,907 for Key Match-Up Down the Stretch with Yankees PDF Print E-mail

Ticket & Attendance Watch

RaysBlame the first Monday Night Football game of the season. Blame the Trop. Blame the fact that it was Monday, if you must, but a paltry 26,907 attended last night’s Yankees and Rays, a battle of who will win the AL East, and clearly two dominating teams for the postseason.

This isn’t trying to pile it on more than a wonder as to what is different this year than in 2008 when the Rays came out of nowhere to capture the AL East? The situation is the same, and yet so different: no one really expects the Rays to compete with the big budget behemoths in the Yankees or the Red Sox, but this year, the club can point back to that stellar run in 2008, and ask, “What the…?.”

Consider...

  • The match-up last night pitted two outstanding pitchers in C.C. Sabathia and David Price
  • On Sept. 15 of 2008, in the midst of the Division chase, the Rays played the Red Sox in front of 29,772 on a Monday
  • The next day, the Rays played the Sox in front of 32,079
  • Maybe we shouldn’t be all that surprised. After all, when the Rays played the Yankees on Tues. Sept 2 of 2008, the only drew 21,629.

Rays fans, we’re beginning to see a pattern. The cowbells will begin arriving about (checks his watch), Oct. 1, shortly before the playoffs commence. Regular season winning doesn’t seem to bring the fans out for the Rays.

Texas RangersThe Texas Rangers continue to reap the advantages of a winning season, and a near certain trip to the postseason in over a decade at the gate, as well as on television.

WEEKEND SERIES: The Rangers three-game weekend series with the New York Yankees attracted 137,396 fans, the 2nd highest total for a three date series ever in Arlington (Arlington Stadium or Rangers Ballpark in Arlington), behind only a 3-date series with the Yankees, May 21-24, 2004, that drew 148,894 fans.

FOR THE SEASON: Through 72 dates, the Rangers have drawn 2,199,563 fans to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, an average of 30,549 that ranks as 5th best in the American League behind the Yankees (46,337), Angels (39,989), Twins (39,757), and Red Sox (37,617). That total is 43,547 fans more than the club attracted in 78 dates for all of 2009. The Rangers have experienced a 13.2% home attendance increase over the same point from 2009, the 3rd highest in the majors behind the Twins (39%) and Reds (15.1%).

TV RATINGS: Through games of Sunday, the Rangers are averaging a 3.6 Nielsen household rating in Dallas-Fort Worth on Fox Sports Southwest, a 32% increase over the same point in 2009. The all-time highest single season FSSW rating for Rangers telecasts is 3.5 in 1998. Friday’s Rangers-Yankees game on TXA21 had a Nielsen household rating of 6.5.

Thursday, 09 September 2010 07:44

MLBMajor League Baseball is on pace to have attendance down slightly from last season’s total of 73,418,529, the fifth highest attended season in MLB history, but down from record numbers the year prior. Currently, attendance is down an average of just under 1 percent from last year at this time (-0.85 percent). Clubs are averaging 30,156 compared to 30,415 last season.

Leading the way in declines are the Mets, who are averaging 6,339 less per game than in their first season in CitiField. They are followed by the Indians, Blue Jays, and Brewers.

In terms of increases, the opening of the Twins’ new Target Field keeps MLB from trending downward further. The Twins are drawing an average of 11,091 per game than last season. They are followed by the Rangers (up an average of 3,006), Reds, Giants, and Padres.

Below is a listing of each club as of the morning of Sept. 9

Texas RangersUPDATE: Added sales update for Yankees and Red Sox series


While the team has lost two in a row, and has gone 5-5 in the last 10, interest in the AL West leading Texas Rangers remains stronger with fans this year than last. After 57 dates, the club has drawn 1,624,804, up 41,900 from the 1,582,904 over the same number of games last season.

In related news, while ticket sales increases certainly isn’t all a factor of the group led Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan winning the bankruptcy auction and confirmation of the Chapter 11 plan for the club on Weds. and Thurs. of last week, it hasn’t hurt. The Rangers report that since Thurs. morning they have sold 27,000 tickets. Also the club is expecting four straight crowds of 40,000+ fans this week when the Red Sox and Yankees come to Arlington, pushing the attendance total up further over last year’s attendance figure.

The Rangers announced late Monday afternoon that most tickets for games are soldout:

Tickets remain for all five games of the homestand but sales have been brisk, especially for the first four games:

  • Tuesday, August 10 vs. New York—approximately 4,250 tickets remaining
  • Wednesday, August 11 vs. New York—approximately 4,500 tickets remaining
  • Friday, August 13 vs. Boston—approximately 6,000 tickets remaining
  • Saturday, August 14 vs. Boston—approximately 5,250 tickets remaining

TEXAS RANGERS ATTENDANCE BY THE NUMBERS *:

  • After 57 Dates (2010): 1,624,804
  • After 57 Dates (2009): 1,582,904
  • Increase 2010 over 2009: 41,900

Atlanta Braves Attendance Up 10 % Over Last Season PDF Print E-mail

BravesThe power of the pennant race has grabbed back hold of the Atlanta Braves fans. According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Braves have drawn 154,037 more fans through 54 home games this season than last.

Through Sunday, the Braves have drawn a total home attendance of 1,671,849 fans, an average of 30,960 per game. Through the same number of games at Turner Field last season, which came on July 31, they drew a total of 1,517,812, an average of 28,108 per game. The difference is nearly 3,000 more fans per game this season.

Based on total attendance to-date, the increase from this season to last is 10 percent.

Even more impressive, the Braves hosted the Yankees and Red Sox in back-to-back series last season for interleague drawing over 40,000 over six games.

The question will be how the fans turn out for the playoffs (should the Braves make it, of course). When the Braves had their incredible run of 11 straight postseason appearances, and 14 appearances over 15 seasons 1991-2005, attendance waned in the playoffs, a sign that it became more of an expectation for fans. Since '05, the team hasn't been back to the postseason. We're betting that if they make the playoffs, attendance will be up.

Red SoxWith a sellout in this afternoon’s game against the Texas Rangers, the fans of the Boston Red Sox have reached 600 consecutive regular season sellout games at Fenway Park extending their record of most consecutive sellouts in baseball history. The previous Major League Baseball record of 455, set by the Cleveland Indians between 1995-2001, was surpassed by Red Sox fans on September 8, 2008. The record streak began on May 15, 2003, in the second year of the new ownership.

“On behalf of John Henry, Tom Werner, and our entire organization, I would like to salute the fans of Red Sox Nation who have extended their own all-time Major League Baseball record to an astonishing 600 straight sellout games,” said Larry Lucchino, President/CEO.  “We congratulate them for achieving this extraordinary milestone and for the passion and dedication they have for the game, for their team, and for their ballpark.  We will continue to work hard to ensure that we are worthy of their loyal and steadfast support.”

The Red Sox players and coaches recognized the fans of Red Sox Nation for their significant accomplishment by tossing commemorative baseballs into the Fenway Park crowd at the start of Sunday’s game.  Ownership, ushers and other staff members also distributed the commemorative baseballs to fans throughout the game.

Tickets for Strasburg’s sixth start, and fourth at Nationals Park were selling at an average price of $54.06 on 7/1, the day before his start according to ticket reseller and research company SeatGeek.com.
