Lower '13 Sox Attendance Finishes 9th Overall

While MLB attendance was down a tad in 2013, it was still a pretty healthy year (74,026,895, the 6th highest attendance of all-time). Your own Carmine Hose finished ninth overall—drawing 2,833,333 patrons to America's Most Cramped Ballpark (34,979 per game). These numbers are off significantly from 2012 (down 209,670 overall, 2,589 per game). For perspective, however, the Tampa Bay Rays were dead last on the overall attendance list—drawing only 1,510,300 fans to The Juice Box in St. Pete. Next year, Pink Hats will likely propel attendance back over the 3 million mark at Fenway Park.
