    Yankees 2017 Attendance

    First Homestand completed

    9 games with a total attendance of 321,928 with an average per game of 35,570

    That average would be 2,897,352 for an 81 game season. April attendance is typically low so looks like 2017 attendance will not be below 3,000,000

    High attendance was Opening Day 46,955 (2016 Opening Day was 47,820)

    Low attendance was Monday 4/17 vs White Sox 28,181 (2016 low was 27,532 on 9/6 vs Blue Jays and the April 2016 low was 30,003 on Thursday 4/7, which was the first trial of 4pm weekday games - that start time is not on this year's schedule).

    Yes, I know this is tickets sold, not actual attendance. The Wednesday night 4/19 game vs. White Sox was a very empty looking Yankee Stadium (15-20k?) but a great game to watch.

    Let's Go Yankees!

    The White Sox crowds and Sunday Night Cardinals game surely brought the average down, but I actually thought the crowds were pretty good for the first 5 games of the homestand.

    4/17 game was only the third time Yankees had a paid crowd under 30,000 since the current Stadium opened. Other two under 30,000 crowds happened last season.
