Frank Chance Newsbeat

[Salem, Oregon] Daily Capital Journal, May 6, 1914:
My gut reaction was that Chance was crazy, but I did the math and I can’t say he was wrong.
The United States officially entered World War I in April 1917. Attendance that year was down 16.8% in the AL and down 23.0% in the NL. In 1918, attendance was even lower: Down 26.8% from 1917 levels in the AL, down a further 28.5% in the NL.
In 1919, with the end of the war, American League attendance was up 94.1% over 1918 figures and NL attendance was up 91.0%.
