This is from yesterday’s Marlins-Nationals game in Florida. Announced attendance 10,122. Some reporter counted 375 people.
Now, Florida is a miserable place for afternoon baseball in September (and most of the baseball season unless you like to sweat) and neither team is any good, but 375 people??
MLB really needs to take charge of the situation in Florida and a few other places. Lousy ownership that just pockets the revenue-sharing money is cheating the fans of South Florida and pretending that 10,000 people came to the game because that was the amount of tickets sold is also a joke.
This is a wonderful game, but I worry that is falling further and further behind football in most of the rest of the country outside of the Northeast.
