Houston Astros running out of fans?

As the Houston Texans continue to garner more attention nationwide for their wins this season, the Houston Astros are being recognized for an entirely different reason.

In fact, the 'Stros have been ranked third on Market Watch's list of the 13 Professional Sports Teams Running of Fans.

Market Watch cites last season's abysmal 55-107 record for the placement on the list, and says fewer than 20,000 tickets were sold for the average Astros game. Minute Maid Park has double that capacity.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Indians came in second place, and the Seattle Mariners topped the list.
