I've said it before but I will say it again, I go to baseball games for free. Actually that's not even true...I get paid to go to baseball games.
It is my job.
So I certainly can't criticize people for not spending their hard earned money to go to a baseball game. Tickets, parking, a hotdog, a drink...even if it's just you that stuff adds up, and if you're paying for a couple of people it can get expensive real quick.
All that said I am still surprised that the Padres only drew 22,739 last night. They began the evening a half game behind the Giants in the division and a half up on the Braves in the wild card race...and they were playing the Cubs who always draw well.
Must be the great TV coverage that's keeping everybody at home.
