  • Tigers, Blue Jays, Royals Seeing Home Attendance Up Over 20%

    Three AL clubs are seeing average home attendance gains of over 20% through May 22, including the Tigers, whose attendance is up 35.8% at Comerica Park. Also seeing big gains are the Blue Jays (+22.4%) and the Royals (+21.4%). The Rangers top all AL clubs with 43,470 fans per game, up 17.7% from the same period last season.
