MLB NEWS: FINAL ATTENDANCE TO SEE AN INCREASE OF OVER 5%
Published September 23, 1997
MLB final attendance for '97 "will show an increase of approximately" 5.6%, according to USA TODAY's Hal Bodley. Acting Commissioner Bud Selig: "We're going to have the second-biggest year in our history." In other news, Bodley notes that a possible compensation figure for teams involved in realignment could hit $10M. But Bodley adds that while MLB's realignment committee thought "compensation might be the answer" during its recent owners meetings in Atlanta, the "concept lost momentum" (USA TODAY, 9/23).
