As I mentioned earlier today, because of the stupid hurricane, the Reds and Marlins scheduled an impromptu doubleheader today. It got underway just under an hour ago. Cincy Enquirer reporter John Fay just tweeted that, during the National Anthem, an actual hand count totaled 250 fans. Another 50 or so have shown up in the past few minutes. The scene from the press box:
I guess it was unavoidable. Still, if you can make it you get two games for the price of one, so you have a good five hours or so to head up to the park and get a lot of baseball cheap. And I’m assuming the ushers will let you trade up to the good seats without bribes and stuff this time.
