Well, any respect that the Fish ever had has officially vanished like some sad, demoralizing magic trick.
No, for real, LSU Baseball had better home attendance than a real life Major League Baseball team in 2018 pic.twitter.com/JsGq436jE9— PodKATT (@valleyshook) October 2, 2018
If giving up superstars in Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich and ending up last place in the NL East wasn't embarrassing enough, Miami made sure to really go to rock bottom. There are some sports fans that don't have a clue as to what's happening in the world of college baseball, but there were still more people interested in attending LSU Tigers baseball games than heading down to watch JT Realmuto and the Marlins
Yes, a college team with amateur players using metal composite bats averaged more fans than a Major League Baseball franchise in 2018.
This should be a reality check for Miami that will help them realize how much of a joke they've become.
The final MLB attendance numbers aren’t nearly as dramatic when you look at it team by team. Most teams are about the same—slight uptick or downtick. Marlins gutted their team in the offseason—down 10k. Pirates same—down 5k. Orioles had historically bad season—down 5k. pic.twitter.com/5naBvFrqiD— Half Street Heart Attack dot com (@HalfStreetHeart) October 2, 2018
Derek Jeter needs to get his act together and produce a team that at least tries to win so that fans can actually help fill a stadium. Get with the program, cap'n!
