(AP) — A crowd of 11,388 attended the World Series opener between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays, the lowest count in a Fall Classic since Game 6 in 1909. They spread in groups of up to four, mostly in alternate rows and none directly behind each other among the forest green seats. Major League Baseball made about 28% available of the 40,518 capacity at the new retractable-roof stadium of the Texas Rangers. World Series games are usually festive. This one had a surreal feel caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
