Empty Jeet seats: Marlins outdrawn by Double-A affiliate

Abenue Ltd., based in the British Virgin Islands, owns a part of Marlins Holdings LLC, which owns Marlins Teamco, the group formed by Jeter and Sherman among others to buy the franchise, according to Sports Illustrated. The Miami Herald reported that Loria claimed he made no income from his $1.2 billion sale regardless of buying the group in 2002 for about $158.three million and using largely authorities funding to assemble Marlins Park. Wednesday night, it had its smallest crowd yet.

The Marlins drew 34,000 fans for their home opener, but they have experienced a mass exodus since.

The franchise's Double-A team actually had more fans at its game.

For the three-game series against NY, the Marlins - who lost Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna as part of a rebuilding plan by the team's new ownership - drew a total of 19,669 fans.

The Miami Marlins took the field on Wednesday to face off against the New York Mets yet again, and did so in front of a roaring crowd of 6,150 fans.
