The Cleveland Indians are having a decent season, entering today’s play with a record of 59-59. That’s nothing to get excited about, but it’s not as if the Indians’ chances of making the playoffs are done. Cleveland is just five games out first place in the American League Central and four and a half games out of a Wildcard spot.
So, it’s pretty embarrassing for Indians fans that they drew fewer than 1,000 people for Game 1 of Wednesday’s doubleheader versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Chris Assenheimer has evidence of the remarkable scene.
