Sagging Home Attendance Adds To Mets Woes

An article by posted on August 18, 2011

Mets attendance at Citi Field continues to drop and according to a report in the NY Post they are about to fall to 14th place in in baseball’s average attendance standings.

The Mets, already suffering from an 8 percent decline in home attendance, an out of contention ballclub and owners who expect to lose about $60 million this season, are about to suffer yet another indignity — they are about to drop into 14th place in baseball’s average attendance standings. Detroit Tigers are about to race right by them.

The Mets haven’t been this ranked this since 2004, the year before Omar Minaya was tapped as GM. Their average attendance this season is 30,891 – a very low figure for a new ballpark, especially one in the largest baseball market in the world.
