Where’d everyone go?

This picture was taken at yesterday’s Marlins-Nationals game:

Puh-thetic.

    375 people. That means that more employees & players were at the stadium than “fans.” Thank G-d we live in a baseball-friendly area.

    Fans in Miami don’t deserve a ML franchise.

      I think you should expand that to the state of Florida.

        In their defense, the D-Rays have to contend with a longstanding community of Yankee fans. I’m not sure that’s enough of an excuse though.

          Weren’t they thinking of moving the team to San Antonio for a while?

  • Mike R.

    That picture is awesome! With everyone dressed in the same tone of orange it looks like the stadium is empty. Optical illusion at its best.

    how do you announce 10,121 in attendance? how is that number achieved? i know we’re in september with the call-ups and all, but

      thats the # of tickets sold. maybe there was a huge traffic jam before the game and 9,746 fans just decided to turn around and go home.

    Until they get a stadium similar to Arizona’s they will never get people to come to their games. August and September are just brutal heatwise in South Florida.

      Tripp is absolutely right. The Marlins need a dome, much like the one that the god-awful Devil Rays have. It’s just too freakin’ hot down there to sit in the sun for 3 hours. I grew up in South Florida, and I still remember the one Marlins game I went to as one of the most uncomfortably hot 3 hours of my life.

    It’s a weird area of the country. If people would show up then the team would improve, it’s not like its a horrible stadium. One things for sure if all the god damn people I see wearing the National’s hats showed up to game they might turn a profit.

    I would say that Miamians (Miamiers?) are the worst. At least the Devil Rays have never been good. The Marlins have won two World Series and still nobody shows up to the games. Either get a new stadium down there or move the team.
