Rangers Just Started A Doubleheader

And this twitpic indicates that is one sparse crowd. (Posted 20 minutes after the game began.)

wow looks like a blast watching ants chase around a ball.Almost as much fun as watching cars go round and round a track...pretty sure it takes drugs and or/ alcohol to arrive at the desired mental effect!

Maybe the hype and hypocrisy surrounding pro team sports nowadays is finally taking its toll on the spectators! Nah, no such luck.

This is not a baseball town. Probably one of the five most exciting... hell, one of the three most exciting teams to play at The Ballpark.

Three sellouts so far this season, IIRC.

This is not a baseball town. And thats a shame.

That is at 4:00 PM on a weekday. Tough for families to make it. Almost no kids there for either game.

There were a lot more folks there for the second game.

The Rangers are actually doing well attendance wise this year. Contending club and all.

Contrary to popular belief the Rangers have always drawn an above average crowd even when they sucked. That has always kept ownership disinterested in making big changes.

The usual fan base was still at work. If the Rangers played lots and lots of day games, like the Cubs do for instance, over time the local fan base would adjust and work around their jobs, take afternoons off, etc. to go to games. They won't because of the heat. So having a weird start time once in a while results in a slow arriving crowd. Has nothing to do with this being or not being a baseball town.
