4/6: Will Baseball Attendance Slide?


4/6: Will Baseball Attendance Slide?

A majority of baseball fans don’t think they’re getting their money’s worth given ticket prices at major league ballparks and admit they pay very little attention to the national pastime.



Last season, 78% of the country didn’t attend a single game, and even 61% of those who consider themselves true baseball fans didn’t make it to see the boys of summer either. With the current economic recession, that’s as much of a concern for the owners as winning the pennant.

    I have been hearing people complain about the cost of tickets to the Yankee ball games. I am a newspaper reporter, and did not ask them about it, but rather they told me how they felt. The prices seemed steep to me, but when I hear what others feel, it verifies my own feelings.
