That had to have been the deadest ballpark 'ambience' I've ever heard on a radio broadcast, even by the exalted standards of the NL's attendance laggards...how they could have the effrontery to announce an attendance of 21,058 is beyond me (ironically the '05 Overachievers' 79th win was also at Florida, in front of an announced crowd of 11,467)...their STH/corporate ticket base isn't that big is it?

attendance is based on tickets sold, not on turnstile counts.
