Infact some of the lesser teams in the MLB struggle to average half full stadia
The lesser teams struggle to average a half-full stadiun because:
1. They suck. The West Indies doesn't get a lot of home support these days either.
2. The stadiums aren't tiny.
3. There are games daily.
The teams such as the Yankees, Red Sox, Braves etc. make huge money from attendance. Don't be fooled. Baseball is a very popular sport.
It's just as ignorant to call baseball worthless as it is for Americans to call cricket boring.
