But I agree, it's probably location and the general reputation of the city. Nobody is having a weekend-long celebration in Houston, for example.
It used to be a pre-season game. I think it was either last year or 2011 when it became a regular season game. I went to the 2008 game against the Mets in Memphis. It was the first time I saw Alexei Ramirez and was shocked at how skinny he was.
