Playing A Little Pepper

The Rays drew 30,000 (mostly Rays) fans for each of the three games during the season-opening series against the Yankees. But the real test comes tomorrow when the Rays return home to face the Twins. How many tickets do the Rays need to sell to avoid being a disappointment?

15,000 seems to be the magic number. The national media seems to have alerts set up on their smart phones anytime the Rays fall below that number. That being said, we have a feeling we will see some good crowds this weekend with all three games in the 18-22,000 range. We would probably be a little disappointed if it is below that mark…18,000

Lineup…

  1. Flash Jennings, CF
  2. Ben Zobrist, RF
  3. Carlos Pena, 1B
  4. Evan Longoria, 3B
  5. Luke Scott, DH
  6. Matt Joyce, LF
  7. Jeff Keppinger, 2B
  8. Jose Molina, C
  9. Sean Rodriguez, SS
  10. Jeremy Hellickson, SP

    Being a weekend it will average about 20 im guessing. The real test will be weeknights. Those will continue to be disappointing.

    Im in sales and i always chuckle at pro sports being the only business where the customer takes the blame for lower than expected product sales.

    The Rays cannot be compared fairly with well established brands firmly embedded in a markets psyche and favorably being being reinforced over generations.
