UPDATE: Attendence Numbers About to Climb

According to the TBO_Rays on Twitter, the Rays have sold out all three Yankees games at the Trop this weekend...the first time the team has ever sold out three straight regular season games at home.

I'm quite surprised by that last fact, but this weekend's crowds, combined with the 26,000-plus camper-dominated gathering today, should boost the team's season attendance numbers quite well. They won't jump more than one spot in the MLB rankings (currently 24th), but it could be the start of a rebound as the Rays get into the nitty-gritty of their playoff push against some very good teams.

It should also give me a nice reprieve from writing posts like "How the Trop is Like Pensacola Beach."
