If you didn’t know better, you might guess that someone called in a bomb threat before last night’s game at Sun Life Stadium. The Florida Marlins rank dead last in total attendance this season and second-to-last in attendance percentage, ahead of only Toronto. The unofficial count of 347 was after the first pitch, but I am assuming everyone in the seats did their own counting and got about the same number. The money collected likely didn’t pay to run the scoreboard.
I understand that this was a rescheduled game, but is that really an excuse for this low of a turn out? This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this with the Marlins either. Is it time to contract?
