The Philadelphia Phillies are hosting the Washington Nationals on Tuesday afternoon. Let’s just say that the live crowd for this game is sparse.

To be fair, we need to note that this is indeed a make-up game. The Nationals and Phillies were rained out on Monday. So, we can imagine that a lot of regular ticket holders just couldn’t make it out for this one on such short notice.
Even still, this is quite noticeable. Unless there’s a heck of a party going on in right field or in the upper deck, we can’t imagine that 1,000 people are at Citizens Bank Park. Heck, based on this picture, we’re not sure that 100 people are at this game.
Hopefully the crowd for Game 2 is a little more filled in.
