Interesting stuff. I wasn't expecting this, but tonight's game in Kinston (2nd home game ever) only had attendance of a little over 1500 fans. I know it's a midweek game, but you would think that people would still be excited from the home opener.

I was looking forward to going tonight, then I checked the schedule for start time - 11 AM. School field trip day - no way I'm going to sit amongst a thousand screaming kids! Oh well, it's supposed to rain tonight anyway, so at least they'll get the game in. Looking forward to getting back inside Grainger Stadium again...

Yea, I would have thought it would have been at least 3k on the 2nd home gameday. Losing 2,700 people in one day between Monday and Tuesday has got to be disappointing. We'll see how attendance is the rest of the week and next with spring break for many schools in the area coming up.

Does that mean 100k tickets sold or 100k butts actually hit the seats?

Based solely on the few games I've been to, I'd guess tickets sold. I went on a Monday night early in the season. The announced attendance was 1300. I was sitting near the scouts behind home plate, and could literally head count the people in the sections around me - roughly 30 people per. My estimation for that game was 500-600. I assume they counted all the sold seats in the boxes, season ticket holders, and corporate purchases, whether they showed up or not.

I honestly don't know the standard used to count attendance, but I do know there was no way there was 1300 people in attendance that April Monday night during the school year.

Grainger Stadium improvements are underway. Second phase of improvements to Grainger Stadium set to begin

Quote:
One city in the east is getting ready to start the next phase of a $1.6 million improvement project.


City officials say they think this project is going to be a home run for the local economy.

The city of Kinston is giving Grainger Stadium a makeover.

The city says they are focusing on creating a better game day experience for fans.

During phase one of the project, the city built a new concessions stand, installed giant overhead fans, and added more picnic areas.

The Kinston Chamber of Commerce says an investment in the stadium is an investment for the entire Kinston area, because it will encourage people to visit local businesses.

"And you really want it to advertise your city," says Bill Ellis, the director of the Kinston Parks and Recreation Department. "This is the welcoming mat of Kinston. A lot of people come to the stadium and don't really go anywhere else. But we hope once we get them here and they enjoy, they will go eat and enjoy our downtown area."

Ellis says phase two of the project is expected to begin mid October.


There will be several other improvements made to the stadium, including the construction of a two-story open air restaurant and bar along right field, near the playground.
Now, if they could just find a way to build a larger team store or set up tents around the stadium for people to buy wood ducks merchandise. The current team store is literally the size of a bathroom and they can only let a certain number of people in at a time. It creates a huge back up and really makes you want to leave line really quickly (or not go in at all). They're missing out on revenue. A couple of 10 x 10 tents around the stadium with a couple of t-shirts, hats, and small items like keychains and bumper stickers would be much better than what they have now.
