Kevin Youkilis Is Ticked At USA Fans…

..and I do not agree with him.  USA is probably averaging no more than 10,000 fans to their games, and that sucks.

“I don’t think we have enough pride in this. It’s kind of a sad day – and I know it’s a tough time (economically) to buy tickets – when you see that. I don’t think there’s as much pride in the USA as there is for these other countries. There was a whole section of Dominican fans (Sunday) night just here to watch baseball. I think we’re losing a little bit of pride for, quote, ‘America’s national pastime.’ ”

“It definitely hurts a little bit to know that you’re always the away team in your own country,” he said. “There are some good people out there, but it would be nice to have a lot more of those people chanting ‘USA,’ holding up American flags. That’s the one thing we didn’t see much of the other night – there were more Puerto Rican flags than American (flags).”

 

It’s pretty sad to feel like the  away team in your own country. This just adds to my thought of having the WBC played in different countries each year, where you know there will be packed stadiums.

  1. Timing is everything. This is the worst time to be having these games.
    USA offered some excitement for us the other night but last night they were flat.

  2. Attendance….that’s kind of hard to do when the cheapest tickets are selling for 45 dollars in the nosebleed section. the way things are going i might just listen to Vin Scully all season instead of wasting $ 200- 300 per game
