I grew up in St. Louis attending Cardinals games and now live in Des Moines and enjoy Iowa Cubs games. So I am familiar with packed stadiums. But what's is it like to live in a city that's not showing up at the ol' ballpark? Ask Tampa Bay.
The price of tickets for some upcoming Tampa Bay Rays games shows the team is desperate to fill up Tropicana Field. Fans can get in for two-dollars July first, second and third, when they take on the Baltimore Orioles. Not only that, but some of the ballpark food is the same price.
How are sales so far? Only two of the five games are sold out. Ouch!
Me? I'll be in attendance at the Cubs game on July 4. I am also excited for the first MLB games this weekend in London.
