Cubs’ announced attendance at Wrigley Field under 27,000 for first time since 2002

The announced attendance at Wrigley Field this afternoon is 26,292, which according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune is the first time the Cubs have been under 27,000 since 2002.

Worse yet, even that modest total is misleadingly good in terms of actual fans in the seats, as Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com reports that “there’s a fraction of that at Wrigley” to see the Cubs versus Diamondbacks.

Oh, and “one fan has already been booted for running on the field.” No word yet on if they’ll count him as a full person or a half-person in the final tally.
