Bucs fan protest is the Pitts
July, 2, 2007
Ho-hum. What happens when you throw a protest and nobody shows up? Just ask Robert Dvorchak, who was in Pittsburgh Saturday night when a few Pirates fans tried to make a point ...
With yet another losing season nearly halfway through, a group called Fans For Change encouraged patrons to leave their seats -- an intentional walk -- to show public displeasure with Pirates management. An estimated 1,000 fans answered the call. Several hundred left after the second inning when the Pirates scored six runs, but the majority made for the concourses after the third inning as planned. Most of the 26,959 in attendance stayed in their seats. Some of them chanted "Let's Go Bucs" and booed the gesture.
