Doubleheaders Newsbeat

Saturday, June 10, 2017

NYT: Borzi: The Rays Are Playing a Traditional Doubleheader. By Choice.

The largest crowds at the original Yankee Stadium (81,841 on May 30, 1938) and Fenway Park (47,627 on Sept. 22, 1935) were for doubleheaders. The author Chris Jaffe, writing for The Hardball Times in 2010, noted the number of doubleheaders rose slightly during the Depression, spiked through World War II, then returned to prewar levels in the early 1950s.
