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.
