Why such a low interest in the games as far as fan participation? Someone educate me. I mean I can understand week day games. But games on a beautiful Saturday afternoon?

We've never had great attendance for baseball. Never had a sell out and IIRC only a handful of games with over 1000 people in the stands.

The next game on a weekend, I'm gonna make sure I'm there. I like baseball after all.

The past 20 years of mediocrity may have something to do with attendance. Good weather can overcome just so much.

Good start to this season though. Hopefully it will continue. The winning and the weather.

I would say it was an above avg. crowd for the weekend. (say what you will about that avg.) If you're just looking at the stands it is pretty sparse. But most people are in the rally ally area eating and drinking.

I used to go to games in the hey days of the 90's when we were fielding good teams and going to the NCAA tournament regularly. There were often only 30 - 40 people in the stands. BUt Soccer used to be like that too until the University put some effort into making Soccer games something the students wanted to go to.

OLD DOMINION BASEBALL 2017
Wiki says the attendance of 2,125 vs. VT in 1984 was the attendance record.

I went to a game where Verlander pitched against VCU and Justin Orenduff where the crowd was crazy. There must have been close to 2,000 there, if I recall Verlander struck out 15 or so and there were dozens of scouts there running radar on both pitchers.
