Teams that played only one home post season game


Reds fans have been waiting since 1995 to see a playoff game in their hometown.
And guess what? If they don’t win today, all they’ll get is a single playoff home game.

It seems almost unfair. A fan base gets pumped up and expects to have a ton of October memories… and then blink, it is over.

So I wondered how many teams made it all the way to October baseball and then gave their teams only one home game.

It has happened 21 times… Cincy had better hope they are not #22.

This is Sully Baseball… we do more than wonder about stuff like this.
The staff here finds it out and we list it.

ENJOY.
