  • MLB Attendance Flat At Midpoint Of Season; Rangers, Indians Driving AL Gains

    MLB teams are averaging 29,729 fans per game at the midpoint of the '11 season, flat compared to the same period last year. AL teams are seeing a 1.3% jump at the gate, fueled by big gains from the Rangers and Indians. Attendance at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is up an MLB-best 35.6% on the heels of the club's World Series appearance, while the Indians' surprising start has led to a 30% jump at the gate at Progressive Field. The Yankees lead all AL teams with 44,360 fans per game, down 3%. The Mariners and Rays are seeing the sharpest declines -- down 16.8% and 13.3%, respectively. Listed below is attendance for the AL through July 10, with comparisons to the same period last year. See tomorrow's issue of THE DAILY for a breakdown of NL teams (THE DAILY).
