"Nobody will come to the Bronx." Suzyn Waldman reminds.

Suzyn today on Yankee radio reminds attendance in the mid 1990's was lagging in the Bronx. The poor stats were used to pitch that the Yankees "needed a new stadium, because nobody would come to the Bronx." Lower attendance today means lower Yankee revenue shared with other teams.
  • 1990 2,006,436 Ranks 8 of 14 AL teams
  • 1991 1,863,733 Ranks 11 of 14 AL teams
  • 1992 1,748,737 Ranks 11 of 14 AL teams
  • 1993 2,416,942 Ranks 5 of 14 AL teams
  • 1994 1,675,556 Ranks 7 of 14 AL teams
  • 1995 1,705,263 Ranks 7 of 14 AL teams
  • 1996 2,250,887 Ranks 7 of 14 AL teams
They didn't get to #1 in attendance in the AL until 2003.
