Oh boy, you can feel the excitement.

The Chicago white Sox and the rays from Tampa played a game in Chicago and a whopping 974 attended the game.

The paid attendance was a bit over 10k but they apparently didn't show up. I don't know if the 10k includes season tickets or not. I would guess so.

Two bad teams and cold weather is my guess
But still it's sad.

My local team is only at the A level and they get more attendance. They have a better park than the white Sox too....lol

Is baseball dying or do they just need fewer teams playing less games?

Just really cold for baseball right now and early season games don't draw a lot of attention especially for bad teams. But yea those number are pathetic.

I'm sure the Chicago cubs had good numbers

The cubs got snowed out in one game...

Funny how fans can watch a football game in the freezing cold but nit baseball.

From the comment section below the article:

Love how the writer conveniently forgot to mention how the game was originally supposed to start at 7pm but was moved up to a 1pm start time the night before. And that the game time temp was 33ish and it was snowing. None of these things would’ve obviously changed the attendance but still would be nice to report all the facts. F this guy and his grandmas basement that he’s freelancing out of.

What!
A news story that didn't tell the whole story?!

I'm sure that didn't help but the attendance was still pathetic. I couldn't imagine that few people showing up to an NFL game, even a pre season game.

Sounds a bit like the turnouts for the Morristown "Frackers'' from the Hank Asaria. The ''Frackers'' are a bush league team that relies upon the very colorful narration of the ''booth announcer'' to make the games exciting. They use tricks to bring out the lethargic fans like batters who are so overweight that their bellies hang out over home plate and cannot avoid being hit by balls thrown within the strike zone.

OH I forgot to mention that the Morristown ''Frackers'' are a fictional team from the new comedy ''Brockmire'' now in it's second season with the first season on Netflix. If you like baseball, this is the funniest show ever.

Is this a real team? Is this a movie like Slap Shot? I'm confused.

Edit:I see, you edited your post, thanks.

Baseball is booooring to watch live. That is why all the Cubs fans get drunk and start fights.

So you're saying that fans of football, soccer and hockey don't get drunk?

I don't think the sport matters..

I think 90% of people who watch hockey can't even tell where the puck is drunk or sober

The game was reschedule for an earlier time on a show day, on a work day. Lazy reporting

The season started a little earlier this year. You can't compare a 16 game schedule to the NFL with 2 pre-season games to Baseball with 162 game schedule. Yes move a game to one P.M. from 7 P.M. and that will cut attendance, as well.

Add in the White Soxs suck, so far.

Brockmire is a past his prime big league color announcer who has gone from the ''bigs' to calling cock fights in SE Asia and action in Philipino porn flicks. He is drugged out, spaced out and hampered by ugly memories of his burnout rant during his last big league game due to heaving drinking and verbally blasting his wife over the air because he came home one evening and found her in the middle of a sex orgy wearing a strap on and doing the his best friend. He melts down but now, unknown to him, he has become a you tube sensation and so is hired by the owner of the Frackers in hopes of cashing in on his internet fame.

I watched Red Sox vs Yankees at Fenway on Tuesday, and man, some of the players looked cold!

The googles said it was 36 °F in Boston, while here in the Anchorage it was 50 °F!

All those Nor'easters... it will take a few before the convection currents can push around the warm air.

I will say, it is nice to see baseball being played again!

It was the White Sox. Where's the mystery?

There really is no reason that the teams in the warmer climates host the games until it warms up. Either that or cut the season back to 150 games.

* If the game is indeed 'for the fans' have the Designated Hitter bat in National League parks and the Pitcher go to bat in American League parks. The way it is now, the National League fans get screwed by having to be exposed to "flailing about"


I played 2 years of pro baseball in the minor leagues (A) and one year was on the worst team in baseball and We always had at least 1,500 fans. Many of them female to watch Me pitch. Shirley, I jest.
