Rays Attendance Watch: April 23

My WTSP counterpart Adam Freeman took a look at Rays attendance today and attributed some of the team's early-season success to being the only show in town. The Lightning failed to make the NHL playoffs.

Through two home series (both weekend affairs), the Rays are drawing 29,268 fans per game, 17th in the majors.

A lot of nothern teams struggle in the early weeks of the season because of the cold, but that's not an excuse domed teams like Houston, Arizona, Seattle, and Toronto can use. All four are behind the Rays in attendance through half a month.
