With tonight's announced attendance of 41,571, the Yankees have set a new record low attendance at Yankee Stadium. The previous low was on 4/21/09 when the Yankees drew only 42,065 on a drizzly and cold night for a game against the A's. You can track this year and last year's attendance with the NYY Stadium Insider Yankee Stadium Attendance Trackers.
As we noted on Twitter last night, people were practically giving away tickets for tonight's game. A co-worker scored tickets in the Grandstand for $4 for tomorrow night's game, so expect more of the same. Guess there aren't many Orioles fans traveling up I-95 to see their team play in the big ballpark in the Bronx.
