Maybe it’s going to be a late-arriving crowd.
I’m sitting in the Camden Yards press box and I’m here to tell you there aren’t 4,000 people here.
I sort of expected a nice crowd tonight. After all, the O’s are red-hot and the weather is perfect for a baseball game.
Maybe 15,000 will show between now and 7:05 pm, but I’m telling you – this is looking like an 8,500-in-the-stands-kinda-night if I ever saw one.
I expected better.
Of course, WNST is probably to blame, right?
It IS a gorgeous night for baseball. And I get to watch my favorite pitcher throw for the Birds…Erik Bedard.
But…I’ll leave around 9:00 pm or so and try to catch the last two periods (plus the almost-guaranteed-overtime period) of the Dallas-Vancouver Game 7 NHL playoff tilt.
BTW- Kinda cool to see “Oakland” on the A’s gray road jerseys. I’m guessing they’re proud of the city in which they play.
