The Tampa Bay Rays have been notorious over the years for their small crowd sizes during home games.

But this is something else.

With many Floridians leaving town in preparation for Hurricane Irma, the Rays only drew 6,509 to Tropicana Field on Tuesday–the lowest attendance in franchise history.

According to those who attended the game, the environment was on the eerie side–and not just because Tropicana Field looks the way it does.​​

​​Somewhat ironically, Tropicana field was the recent location of the displaced series between the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros, forced from Minute Maid Park by Hurricane Harvey.

Who knows when this record will be broken–but if you’ve got a Rays ticket stub from the game, that might be worth something one day.
