Where are all the fans?
By Mike Mazzeo
NEW YORK -- The Yankees and Red Sox are playing a very meaningful game in the Bronx in early September.
So where, exactly, is everyone?
Significant portions of sections in the
corners of Yankee Stadium are empty for Thursday night’s game.
Of course, we’re in the middle of the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah, so that could be one of the reasons. Another? Many kids are back in school.
Still, it’s Yankees-Red Sox!
For the season, the Yankees have averaged 44,647 for six home dates against the Red Sox this season -- including two of their four sellouts.
