    Average 28,700 + today, but NOT counting todays game...It looks like the averages dropped last week (In the middle of a week FULL of Monsoons) ....AGAIN...this is 100% better than any year in Timbaktu (Of course NOT counting World Series).

    They are HAPPIER than anyone expected it..

    Make the Marlins a WINNING Team....Marlins Park is a sell out.,GUARANTEED !!!!! never before !!!! :cap:

    Including Thursday’s take, the Marlins had an average paid attendance of 28,620 people per game in 2012 — a 67-percent increase over the same 20-game span from a year ago. But of the nine teams that have opened new stadiums in the past decade, just the Cincinnati Reds (25,708 in 2003) had a smaller average at this point of their inaugural years, according to figures provided by Baseball-Reference.com.

    These numbers reflect tickets sold, not people in seats.

    BUT.....a HUGE BUT......They're averaging 32,000 + per game ..... Compared to Timbaktu's 19 years... The Marlins are Campers !!!!!!

    Remember, WINNERS sell out stadiums..The Miami Marlins WILL have to attain that status first and foremost...but their averages as far as public is concerned its Awesome, compared to even last year !!!!!

    Richard, Chef Bill....Its NOT a Miami Problem....Its the Sunshine State problem. I have roots in the Clearwater-St Pete area and in NE Orlando..ALL of Florida has that stigma attached...Look at Jacksonville.....

    I've lived in S. Florida for my entire life and Miami is a lousy sports town. It's not just the Marlins.

    The Fan Base is rebuilding ONE game at a time with RECORD Crowds at Marlins Park.. Something NEVER seen while playing at Timbaktu for 19 years. In one month things have DRASTICALLY changed... Miami Gardens WAS the wrong place to be at !!!!

    I was exagerating about there being few fellow Marlins fans. The Marlins do well on television and radio. I am not suggesting the Marlins will become the Yanks or Red Sox regarding attendance, but if the Marlins ownership makes a commitment to win, then it will still take years to change perception of the Marlins as being cheap and generate new fans, but I still think with the new stadium the Marlins fans will return. It may take a few years though

    I think they will have fans if they don't sell all their good players like they did after their WS wins. They do have an exiting young team if they can keep it together the wins and fans will come.

    But if they did like always and don't bring back players like hanley or stanton fans will lose interest in the team.

    I agree with you on that part except on the baseball fans. The marlins are my favorite team obviously but I live in Florida.

    I think the key is to spend the money to convert fans of other teams to the Marlins. This will take several years. The perception is that their are no baseball fans in S. Florida. There are, but they follow other teams.

    Exactly, if the owner wants to see allot more fans in the stands. He'll need to spend some money to attract fans to the stadium.
