Crowd for White Sox-Royals suspended game was non-existent

White Sox

If the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals play a continued game and nobody is there to watch it, did it even happen? That is something the teams were trying to test.

Monday’s White Sox-Royals game was suspended in the fifth inning due to rain. The plan was to continue the game on Tuesday, prior to the originally-scheduled contest between the teams. When the game began at 4:40 p.m. CT, there weren’t many fans in attendance.

Check out these photos from the Chicago Tribune’s Paul Sullivan:

A few more fans had scattered through over the next hour.

The White Sox allowed fans with tickets for Tuesday’s game to come early to watch the conclusion of the suspended game. They also gave fans with tickets for Monday’s game the option to receive the equivalent value to attend a future White Sox home game, including Tuesday’s.

The White Sox entered Tuesday 23-29, while the Royals have the third-worst record in the league. The White Sox are 23rd in the league in attendance with an average home crowd of 18,519.

Last year we saw a similar image from the White Sox for one of their games. This isn’t a better look.
