IOWA CUBS BASEBALL GAME HAS ZERO FANS

PRINCIPAL PARK IN DES MOINES, IOWA FOLLOWING FLOOD

The Chicago Cubs Triple A affiliate in Des Moines, Iowa set an all-time baseball attendance record Saturday night. They had an attendance of zero people for their game against Nashville.

The game took place in an empty stadium, because the downtown evacuation order for Des Moines kept fans from getting into the game. Principal Park was surrounded by water on Friday, but the waters receded enough so Saturday’s game could take place. But because the evacuation order remained in effect at game time, only team employees and major league scouts were allowed in the park.

Iowa won Saturday’s game 5-4. The team played a doubleheader Sunday and the stadium was reopened to fans.
