Dollar Ticket Night For Nats-Pirates Still Looks Like Giant Bore [Photos]

As of this writing the Nats and Pirates are headed to the 9th with Washington leading 4-2 on what is a historic night in MLB 21st Century history. You are looking at $1 ticket, $1 hot dog and $1 peanuts night at a ballpark that is less than 5 years old and in a city where baseball was supposed to blossom into a force. Instead, you were pretty much begged to attend this game and as you can see from the following photos being posted on Twitter, the place was still practically empty.

Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog wrote earlier today:

Anyhow, I asked Feffer if we could expect more mega-bargain promotions from the Nats

“These are things that we’ll test and we’ll see,” he said. “Maybe not the same exact offer, but I think it’s very important from a strategic standpoint that we offer promotional nights that engage the fans in different ways. We should do that throughout the season in different ways, with different partners and different ideas. We’ll get feedback from our fans — I assume they’ll love it – but what did you like about it, what would you like to see? That information helps us do more of this type of thing.”

Catch Nats fever! It’s minor league baseball without having to leave the big city.
