Attendance Update and the Angels’ Latest PR Mess | FanGraphs Baseball

That same search also revealed many cheap tickets, some as low as five dollars, for an upcoming Saturday night game. The Angels have not priced out fans from lower socioeconomic classes from entering the game, but they apparently do want their well-off fans to know that the club is marketing to the rich and trying to prevent their less well-off fans from intermingling.

Angels attendance is way down, Arte doesn’t care

Per game attendance is down at Angel Stadium by 4,300 fans. That’s compared to their numbers last year, but if you want to compare it to the height of Red October days, then that number is closer to 8,000. The benchmark for every season since 2002 was 3 million Angels fans passing through the turnstiles every year, and from these early estimates, they are not going to be hitting that mark. Are the Angels worried? Well, if Robert Alvarado, the VP of marketing and ticket sales is to believe, then no, they’re not worried.

DRaysBay: The Rays attendance problem is getting worse

With the help of savvy scheduling, the Rays are hosting the Yankees mid-week, and normally that’s a strong draw, but it’s supposedly a doubly-strong draw with A-Rod in the house and the Yankees leading the division. The Tampa Bay community is saturated with Yankees fans of old, so the numbers were anticipated to be decent this week. Instead, the opposite has happened:

- Attendance was at it’s lowest ever in franchise history for a Yankees game on Tuesday night, at 10,619.

- Then last night, the attendance was announced at 10,417 for the new all-time low featuring New York.

Of course, last night’s number was surely compounded by the Tampa Bay Lightning hosting Montreal and winning their division in the Stanley Cup playoffs, but the number is still rather close to Tuesday’s figure when the hockey team was travelling. Unless fan interests intersect directly with the NBA playoffs, of which the closest team playing is 500 miles away, then there’s not a good excuse.
