Even the players recognize it, and one player who has had the experience of playing for both teams isn't too shy about pointing it out.
AJ Pollock, who played for Arizona before signing with the Dodgers, threw shade at his former fans by saying "not many" supporters show up to home games.
What makes it even more savage is that it was actually Joc Pederson who brought up the attendance in the first place. Pollock just saw the opportunity to take a jab and seized it.
And while the two might just be messing around, there's plenty of truth to it all. Last year, the Diamondbacks finished 12th in the NL in total attendance and just 17th in all of baseball in attendance per game.
The simple fact of that matter is that the Diamondbacks just don't draw nearly as many fans as the Dodgers, who led the league in total attendance and attendance per game in 2019.
Perhaps if more fans start showing up to games, superstar players like Pollock will stop defecting.
