One of the guys in my Sox season ticket group is also in a Cubs group. He said some days (and nights) they would be lucky to have 15,000 actually sitting in the seats.
Hm, I didn't realize they didn't collect payment on tickets until when people show up on gameday.
Let's not pretend like there aren't plenty of nights the Sox announce attendance somewhere in the 20,000's and the reality is there's maybe 10,000 people there, tops, too.
