Here's a couple of dates I did cherry pick:
- Monday May 3, 1999 v. Arizona, Attendance 13,943 (Note Reds were last in NL Central at that point)
- Friday May 5, 2000 v. St. Louis, Attendance 42,126 (we're were 2nd behind St. Louis at that point)
Since that was a Friday game, I picked the next weeknight game at home
- Tuesday, May 9, 2000 v. San Diego, Attendance 22,435 (still in 2nd at that point)
- Monday, May 1, 2002 v. Milwaukee, Attendance 12,867 (Reds were in 1st place at that point)
Not sure what conclusions to draw. Perhaps we are all still getting used to the possibility of winning after so many dismal seasons.
