Tampa Bay Rays Embarrassingly Failed To Sell Out $5 Tickets As Attendance Continues To Plummet
The Tampa Bay Rays fan base is just nonexistent.
The franchise realize they have an attendance problem, so they tried to do something about it.
In an attempt to lure fans to the ballpark to fix the poor attendance numbers, the team announced a $5 ticket flash sale.
It failed miserably, via The WFLA.
“The 5,000 discounted tickets were made available for five home games, and the Rays only sold out of two of those games, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The desperate attempt to fill seats at the Trop comes after years of a steady decline in attendance.”
So far during the 2019 season, the Rays rank No. 29 with an average attendance of 13,662 fans — the only team with worse attendance is the Miami Marlins.
The difference between the Marlins and Rays — The rays boast a record of 39-24, while the Marlins are a putrid 23-39.
