Worcester's Dubious Attendance Record Broken

Before today, the fans of Worcester, Massachusetts could boast the lowest attendance ever at a professional baseball game. Way back on September 28, 1882, a grand total of six fans showed up at the Worcester Driving Park Grounds to watch the Troy (N.Y.) Trojans face the hometown Worcester Ruby Legs. Worcester's National League entry lost the game, 4-1. Today, that mark was shattered by the zero fans attending the White Sox-Orioles tilt at Camden Yards. Oh, well. Records are made to be broken.
