Stadium stuffed with empty seats
By Ian Begley
Where the heck is everybody?
That's what some of the Yankees had to be wondering during pregame introductions.
Yankee Stadium was less than half full during intros and was slowly filling up as first pitch approached. No doubt, the start time has something to do with the late-arriving crowd.
First pitch was set for 5:07, a tough time for anyone who works a 9-5.
Maybe there are traffic issues as well. It's hard to get anywhere in New York City during rush hour on a Friday.
Surely, the Stadium will fill up eventually. Right?
