Take Us Out to the Ballgame, Take Us Out to the Crowd Smattering

For last Thursday’s Blue Jays game against the Chicago White Sox, 10,744 fans showed up—a better number than Wednesday’s worst-ever turnout of 10,610, but a number still lower than just about any home Jays game ever, and a number worthy of mocking by Alex Rios. (To put the figure into perspective, Torontoist will probably have more visitors today than the Rogers Centre did Thursday.)
Torontoist photographer Christopher Drost shot the timelapse video above throughout the middle of Thursday’s game, from a private box containing a few city councillors, a famous ex-Jay, and some off-duty police sergeants; his video catches the roof closing, the crowd filing in and out, and a lot of lonely blue seats.
