Where Did Everybody Go?

Congratulations to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. They defeated Gwinnett in the first round of the International League playoffs. The Yankees now play either Durham or Louisville for the IL championship.

Now, the bad news. Only about 1,400 fans attended the Friday and Saturday night games in Moosic. Admittedly, the weather was beyond horrible, but we should have done better than 1,400.

For the season, 360,000. Remember, that's tickets sold, not butts in the seats. It was good for 10th place, out of 14 cities in the International League.

It makes you wonder if this really is a baseball town.
