In this July 21, 2012, photo, fans watch along the third base line during the first inning of a baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Mets at Citi Field in New York. The official attendance was 33,503. Like most of the other sports leagues, Major League Baseball tracks attendance by the number of tickets sold. Though teams insist they are not trying to sugarcoat a smaller-than-anticipated crowd, fans in today's world of social media will often point out perceived inaccuracies in attendance figures, perhaps posting a photo on Twitter of vacant seats to back up their beef.
