Labor Day brings a new low for the Phillies
Bad news stalks the Phillies this season. On Monday the team hit a new low — a loss in front of the smallest crowd in the history of the Citizens Bank Park.
The Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 in front of 15,125 people.
“The latest loss in the Phillies forgettable 2015 season was played in front of an announced crowd of 15,125, a new low attendance record for Citizens Bank Park, which has hosted 1,203 games since 2004,” Philly.com reported.
Ryan Lawrence reported that Monday’s crowd wasn’t just a new low — “it was a nearly 2,000 lower than the previous record (17,097 on April 23 against Miami).”
