(Sorry Lew), A’s attendance is picking up

Friday, June 1, 2012

Some unexpected good news for the Oakland A’s (or bad news for those who subscribe to the Lew Wolf sabotage theory): Attendance this year is up. A third into the season, the A’s are averaging 20,218, up 2,358 fans a game over this time last year. That’s despite their being in last place in the AL West. Observes San Francisco Business Times’ Eric Young:

With Manny Ramirez close to joining the club, Yoenis Cespedes off the disabled list today and a number of popular teams coming to Oakland -- including San Francisco, Boston and New York -- the club has a good chance to improve over last year’s fan tally of 1.48 million.
