This week's Other deals with an amazing record that the Mariners were able to achieve last month. And what was that record?
They had only 1 person attend the first game of their April 28th double-header against the Chicago White Sox. At least, that's what espn.com's records show. See for yourself.
I understand that a Jakubauskas start doesn't inspire a lot of people to head to the ballpark, but come on. You would think more than one person would show up. I mean, at the very least the one guy that went to the game would bring somebody with him.
So, how did this happen? Well, Other caught up with the one man who attended that game, his name is Dale Shit, and the following is the interview conducted with him.
Other: So you attended a game where you were the only person in the stands, how did this happen?
Dale Shit: I just love baseball. It seemed like a great day to catch a game.
O: Is your last name really Shit?
O: Well thanks for your time.
So there you have it folks. The true story of the game with one man in the stands.
