‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)
Looks Like About 12 Fans Showed Up To Watch Royals-Rays Play Baseball At Kauffman Stadium (PICS)
On Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Rays were in town to take on the Kansas City Royals and no one else seemed to care.
The Rays are an impressive 19-10, but the home team is just 10-20 and showing no signs of being able to turn it around in 2019. The Kansas City Royals have the second-worst record in baseball and haven’t been competitive in two years.
The fans know this, so they show it by not showing up.
Wednesday at Kauffman Stadium, it looked as if there were more players on the field and in the dugouts than fans in the stadium.
I know that it's a Wednesday afternoon during the school year in a city that doesn't draw well against a team that doesn't attract a road crowd. But I've never seen so few people at a major league game as the one just starting now between Kansas City and Tampa Bay. pic.twitter.com/z3QUdfdWiT

It’s an unscheduled day game as part of a DH, and a 12:15 local time start at that, and it’s 60 degrees and kinda damp …
But, still, there’s nobody here for #Rays and #Royals … pic.twitter.com/1aSVnozI6y

To be fair to the fans, the average cost to attend a game with two hot dogs, two beers and parking ranks as baseball’s seventh-most expensive. Being terrible on the field combined with being expensive gets you the 28th-ranked attendance.
The Royals, however, did send the 18 fans in attendance home happy with a 3-2 victory.
