Miami Marlins Double-A Affiliate Drew More Fans Than The Pro Team
Just one day after the Miami Marlins drew a putrid 7,003 fans at Marlins Park against The New York Mets, the fan base was back at it again, not showing up to support their struggling and rebuilding team.
The Miami Marlins took the field on Wednesday to face off against the New York Mets yet again, and they did so in front of a roaring crowd of 6,150 fans. If that number doesn’t hit home, then it should now after their double-A affiliate drew more fans to their field than the professional baseball team.
