NEW YORK, Feb. 18—(/P)—Does anybody know how many baseball fans there are'—We don't menu the total attendance, but how many of the millions who live in major or minor league territory who actually go |o one >r more games a .season. Professional baseball lifts been "on sale" since 18ti9, but so far as we have been able to learn, only one hall-hearted attempt has been made to conduct a consumer survey—In 1935 Bill Brandt, then head of the national league service bureau, conducted one of those opinion-sampling affairs whi:h included some, questions on attendance. FIGURING THE FIGUUES Brando received 828 answers to his questionnaires, which the experts figured was about half the number distributed—Of these 828 people, 406 said they hadn't seen a Ull game that reason—Another 262 had attended ten Or less and from there the answers went up to one guy who had attended 125 games and three who had seen 100 each— Assuming that ihe folks who didn't answer weren't interested in baseball, these figures would show that 75 percent of the people "sampled" definitely weren't baseball fans— Another 14 percent were lukewarm and only 11 percent saw more than ten games—Baseball doesn't need to worry about that guy who saw 125 ames; he's incurable.
