A day later, there’s a bit of squawking from the media about the rather pitiful turnout Monday night, coupled with Jorge Leon’s mongoose to Lew Wolff’s snake. I didn’t know about the Leon-Wolff exchange until Tuesday morning, but yeah, I was there for the game.
I hadn’t noticed it previously, but this season the A’s have stopped the “Guess the Attendance” game, usually held in the middle of the 8th. Dick Callahan didn’t even give the figure with his postgame announcements. We’ve rehashed this enough, but if you want to have at it you know where to go.
