AFL attendance for the games totalled 27,312, topping baseball's 22,771 by 19%. AFL Commissioner James Drucker: "The NHL, NBA, baseball, and the NFL are all ahead of us but Arena Football is starting to nip at their heels. After the four biggest leagues, we are the largest and fastest growing league" (AFL).
