Derek Jeter won't attend Marlins-Yankees series, citing potential for 'awkward situation'

Jeter is not happy with the low attendance numbers. "We have to grow those numbers". Many games had a noticeably lower number of fans in the stands than the official attendance reported.

"One of the qualities of running a first-class organization is honesty", Jeter said.

"I like how the guys are at least going about their business".

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton will face his former club on Monday night for the first time since he was traded by the Marlins.

The team drew 6,150 fans Wednesday, while its Double A affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, drew 6,960 fans for its home opener.

However, reported attendance numbers by the Marlins have been suspect for years. "We're on pace after the second homestand to have our turnstile numbers higher this year than they were last year".

Jeter also talked about announcing attendance figures, which has garnered attention over the last week.

Derek Jeter made sure to basically never get seen doing anything off of the field when he was a player for the New York Yankees. "We've tied or had the lead in 10 of those 12 games". The Marlins entered Friday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on a three-game losing streak, after being swept by the New York Mets. "And reporting paid attendance as the number of tickets sold is the way we're going to report it". "Winning more games is part of it". "They're not really beating us down (on Sunday), but more like a couple (runs) here, another one, another one, another one. So, I might as well get out in front of it and say, I'm not going". Obviously he's involved with the Marlins now in a completely different capacity, but I think he's earned the right to step away and not show up for every function here and there that people maybe expect him to be.

Jeter said one of the major complaints he hears often from fans is the difficulty caused by traffic in getting into and out of the ballpark before and after games.

"But like I said, I like the approach". "We were very honest with each other in our meetings". We're developing a winning culture here. No one is happy with the results.

"I don't think there's any insane bad blood besides what you guys stirred up", said Stanton, who will see the Marlins Monday at the Stadium when the clubs start a two-game series, weather permitting.

NOTES: Garrett Cooper's wrist injury is worse than initially diagnosed and the first baseman/outfielder was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.
