    Baseball fans pour through the turnstiles to see certain teams and avoid others like the plague. The top 5 draws (based on percent of stadium capacity for which tickets were sold for both home and road games) this season have been the Red Sox (87%), Phillies (86%), Yankees (83%), Twins (82%) and Cubs (82%). The bottom five are the Blue Jays (46%), Athletics (48%), Mariners (49%), Royals (50%) and Reds (50%).

    It’s interesting that four of the bottom five are A.L. teams – and three of those four are not in the A.L. East. Betcha those teams wish they got to host Boston and New York more times than they do now…

      I dont even know why they include Boston on this list. If YSIII held 35,000 we’d outdraw them easily.

      Because the Red Sox are a huge draw regardless if they’re number one or three? They belong on the list. You’re deluded if you think otherwise.
