The announced attendance of 5,786 for Tuesday’s game against the Blue Jays was the smallest ever at the Trop for a Rays game in 22 seasons of play.
It also was the lowest for any game in the majors this season.

Orioles 6,585 vs. A’s April 6
Reds 7,799 vs Brewers April 11
Athletics 8.073 vs. Rangers April 22

There were two games at the Trop that drew smaller crowds. That was in 2017, when a Rangers-Astros series was shifted from Houston to the Trop due to hurricane-related issues. They had games with announced attendance of 3,485 on Aug. 29 and 3,385 on Aug. 31.
