Through June 1, home attendance at Dodger Stadium is down a total of 221,984 from last season, an average 7,161 fewer fans per game. This represents a 16.7 percent overall drop, which is by far the worst in baseball this season.
Attendance across MLB through Monday is down 381,786 from last season, an average of 426 fewer fans per game
