Attendance, Season Tickets: St. Peter (via Berardino)
I found the following article interesting: http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_...ome-attendance
Apparently even the prospect of All Star game tickets couldn't stop the bleeding with the season-ticket base:
A full season-ticket equivalent base that has dropped steadily from 25,000 in 2010 to last year's 19,000 is only projected to reach 17,000 by Opening Day, St. Peter said.
"To get back to 19, let me just say this, it would take a pennant race in September in order for us to get there," St. Peter said. "If we're having a good season, it's feasible you could add a couple thousand FSEs during the course of the season. That's possible. But if you're not in contention, that's going to be tough."
I hope the players they've signed will help the Twins stay below the 90 loss level but does anyone think they've done enough to truly make them contenders?
