Don’t forget the ballpark was full despite the paid attendance being in the low 30s. The PG story on attendance mentioned the fact that season ticket holders can exchange tickets for other tickets for games they don’t want to go to.

So, many season ticket holders who didn’t feel like attending a Monday night game in April against the Rockies when its 42 degrees trade them in for a nice Cardinals ticket in July, but the gate counts for the April game.

And this explains something else to me, as an out of towner who watches every game on Direct TV. There have been those April games where I see attendance announced as 20, 000 and there clearly aren’t 15 thousand in the house.
