Announced attendance 19,169...first time we've had less than 20K in the house since the Reds finale on Thursday 11th June (19,703)...and first time since Tuesday 18th September 2007 at RFK that we've had less than 20K in the house for a Mets visit (19,966) - in fact it's the lowest we've drawn for a Mets visit since the match before that one (Monday 17th September: 18,678).
Previous Nationals Park low for a Mets visit was this past 5th June (20,353 on a Friday).
Already the wind-down to the end of another train-wreck season has begun...with the team stinking to high heaven, Redskins camp opening in a bit over a week, Metrorail wonkiness, no more A-list opponents like the Cubs or Red Sox visiting*, and continued weather issues (at least 'scattered thunderstorms' predicted all the way through Saturday), tickets for the rest of this homestand and for foreseeable series thereafter should be quite easy to get - I wouldn't be surprised if we don't crack 30K again the rest of the season.
*Closest thing to it on the remaining fixture list would be the final series against the Braves, a weekend series running 25th/26th/27th September with two afternoon matches...the final visits of the Mets and Phillies are weeknight series, and the Nats will be idle (between home stands against the Marlins and Phillies) on Labour Day, the last remaining in-season holiday (and what brainiac in the league office made that scheduling hiccup?).
