WHILE BRAVES SIZZLE ON FIELD, FANS STILL GIVING THEM CHOP
Published July 18, 1995
The Braves' attendance is down 26.1% after 38 home dates, an improvement from earlier in the season, when after 10 games, attendance was down 43.7%. However, "Braves fans aren't exactly fighting for a spot on the post-strike bandwagon," writes I.J. Rosenberg in this morning's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Rosenberg reports that the first-place squad's no-show rate is 27.9% -- 9,511 per game. The Braves recently began a 25-game season- ticket package deal that will allow fans to buy playoff ticket. The team sold 200 in the first week (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 7/18).
