Through first six games, Rays' attendance up
ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays have drawn 175,613 fans (29,269 per game) through their first six home games this season, their highest total through six games at Tropicana Field since the inaugural 1998 season. In addition, this is an increase of 62 percent over their attendance through six home games last season (18,116 per game) -- though all six games this season have fallen from Friday through Sunday while three of the first six games last year were from Tuesday to Thursday. The Rays did not reach 175,000 in attendance last year until their 11th home game.
