Students are not coming back for a baseball regional. Some don't know we even play baseball. They are the attendance of baseball games. It isn't that many locals.
Also, you have to factor in the weather. Do you want to buy tickets, in advance (most of which will be general admission, anyway), for something that might be pushed off a day, or two?
Not to mention, if Tech goes 0-2, on Friday, and Saturday (early), and you live in NOVA, and get to pay for a hotel for Saturday night you didn't want to? Because you will, the two night minimums that get kicked in for football will be in force this weekend.
I wasn't going to throw Weaver and Sandy Smith under the bus on this, but somebody alludes to it in this same thread - yeah, they could have been more on top of it, but one has to remember, we do not sell tickets to baseball games. We don't have an existing online system for it, and I can only blame Pete Hughes. He got his guys to peak at exactly the perfect time. It is as simple as that!
Most of the reserved seating will be set aside for player tickets - people are getting all in a wad over this, for no reason.
