27,000? No way.
The listed attendance for tonight's game was a little over 27,000. They must be counting ticket sales and not actual butts in the seats. The row I was in had only one other person in it. The 4 rows in front of me were empty. The last 9 or 10 sections of the upper deck in left field were completely empty. There weren't any sections where more than half of the seats were filled - and those that were even close were few and far between. 27,000? I think not. 15,000 bodies actually through the gate would be a stretch.
