I have seen NONE except for some of the players. SAD. Can't wait for my Astros to get home to diversified Houston and kick some serious ass and win this thing !!

Not peculiar to DC, for that matter. All those expensive seats go to the rich and well-connected.

as are parking, food at the venue, etc. -- several hundred dollars for a family -- and I can only imagine how much more the World Series tickets are. It's probably too expensive most of the population, who are not rabid baseball fans able and willing to spend that much to go to a game they can see on TV.

There are many Asian-Americans and Latinx here, as well as lots of international folks.

When I went to a baseball game with friends in another eastern city several years ago, I saw almost zero people of color. So that makes me wonder if baseball fans tend to be predominantly white, non-Latinx.
