The Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates played three scoreless innings on Friday night at PNC Park, before a storm came through Pittsburgh and caused a two and a half hour rain delay.

And when the game resumed, there were about as many people on the field as there were in the stands.

Again, it was a two and a half hour rain delay, and it was a chilly night in Pittsburgh. Additionally, the Brewers are one of the lowest attendance draws in the league, and it’s May. So, it’s understandable, but still pretty incredible to see that few people at a major-league baseball game. Or at least one that isn’t in Florida.

Here’s a look at what the crowd apparently looked like before the rain delay (via Blake Stover on Twitter):
