Get used to this in Miami. After a 30K+ crowd on Monday night, last night’s Marlins-Braves game wasn’t particularly well-attended:
Tuesday’s announced crowd of 14,222, as a matter of fact, is the smallest since Marlins Park opened last year. There’s a good way to look at this for whoever’s willing. Why not see this as an opportunity for a taste of the VIP treatment, sort of like Elvis renting out a movie theater for himself?
Pretty bad given that, historically, the Braves coming to town have often meant a small bump in the gate for the Marlins.
And when you put up six hits in two games, you’re not going to do much to draw anyone else in later games either.
Gonna be a long year.
