Not a record

Can't even set a record this way.  According to the news reports, the Pirates drew ~3,000 people even today. Those folks all deserve some prize from the Pirates organization don't you think?  If you believe this source, the lowest attendance for a major league baseball game was 23 in 1916 or a modern record in the hundreds for an Athletics game in 1979.

I really wonder... if someone announced there was going to be a public protest of the Nuttings because of the Pirates record, how many people would show up?

I was quite surprised when they didn't cancel or move the Pirates game. At least the Pens were smart enough to do that.

About the attendance, I wonder how far down it would go before it actually makes an impact. Remember the "walkout" a few years ago that went nowhere?
