    2014 Attendance

    Opening night was a huge success again this season. Despite the crummy weather, the Reds by far had the highest attendance of any team yesterday.

    Many teams struggle to get fans into the ballpark for game 2 or 3 of the season including teams in large cities like the White Sox. In the next post, I will post a photo taken in the second inning of the White Sox game yesterday showing the lack of fans.

    MLB Attendance - April 3, 2014
    Cincinnati - 36,189
    Pittsburgh - 29,762
    NY Mets - 29,146
    Texas - 28,218
    San Diego - 27,498
    Detroit - 26,906
    Baltimore - 25,708
    Houston - 23,145
    Milwaukee - 21,712
    Arizona - 19,357
    Miami - 15,866
    Oakland (game 1) - 15,134
    Oakland (game 2) - 12,198
    Tampa Bay - 10,808
    Chicago White Sox - 10,625

    Here's a look at the crowd in the second inning in Chicago yesterday. Sad.

    People are tired of being ripped off. It is only a matter of time in all professional sports.
    "Some of the guys who pitched well for us last year aren't going to make the ballclub," Narron said.

    I bet the Reds were disappointed with the weather the past two games. Probably lost a good deal of potential money since it was opening weekend and a series against the Cardinals, whom I assume are probably a top draw in Cincy. Can't expect people to stay around for 2.5-3 hour rain delays, especially during the weekdays.

    I don't think so. Baseball is making more money than ever.

    How are people being ripped off?

    I just took my family of 4 to the game today. Bought $15 Business Day special tickets and each of us got a $10 voucher for food. Sure i had to pay to park but if thats what people consider getting ripped off then rip away.

    Baseball is right there with Major League Soccer as far as affordability goes. Tickets for NFL, NBA, and NHL games are outrageous by comparison.

    baseball tickets are pretty "cheap", youŽll find tickets for a good price. Football? very expensive (they have only 8 home games...) but nhl and nba arenŽt cheap either.
    I do like soccer tickets in germany, you can get standing room tickets for 10-15$... but those tickets for seats are getting more and more expensive, too

    This is a real thing? I always thought it was like Big Foot or the Lockness monster. I have seen shows with people talking about it, but I have never actually seen proof.

    The Reds have to be pleased with their attendance all things considered. They got both Wednesday's and Thursday's games in so no doubleheader in September against the Cards and no rain checks.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    The Reds are averaging 28,214 through 18 games. That's up 2,874 per game in attendance so far this season through 18 games.

    The Indians across the state are dead last in MLB attendance averaging just 13,548 per game.

    I think this year is the tipping point. Contend all year and win a playoff series and attendance will set records this year and next.

    2014 - 28,215
    2013 - 25,340
    2012 - 26,419
    2011 - 22,848
    2010 - 20,320
    2009 - 21,233
    2008 - 21,352
    2007 - 22,810
    2006 - 21,800
    2005 - 22,545
    2004 - 24,575
    2003 - 25,404 (first year @ GABP)
    2002 - 18,790 (last year @ Cinergy Field)

    An obvious trend can be observed over the past few years. Even with all the crappy weather we have had so far - the numbers are really impressive.

    I really never thought I'd see them averaging 28,000 per game. I just assumed those numbers only happen in St.Louis or the Mega Markets.

    Good job, Reds.

    This upcoming Padres series probably is going to move that 28,000 number down at least a thousand.
