Sports commentary: Where is everyone?

MLB attendance is down. What's the scoop?

By Mike Forster

 

Lots of empty seats.  That's what you'll see if you happen to tune your tube to a Major League Baseball game these days.

It seems to me that there are an awful lot of tickets going unpurchased.  Or, if they are purchased, they're sitting on someone's coffee table, never to be redeemed.

To test my theory, I grabbed the sports section from the Roanoke Times.  The box scores in that newspaper list the games' attendance, as well as the seating capacity at the hosting facility.
