Pirates To Finish Season With Club's Second-Highest Home Crowds
The Pirates "will finish the season with the second-highest home attendance in the club's history," trailing only the 2.4 million fans who came out in '01 for the team's inaugural season at PNC Park. As of Friday, the Pirates have drawn 1,910,167 fans to the ballpark in 69 regular-season home games. The club heads to St. Louis this weekend for a three-game series with a 1.5-game lead over the Cardinals in the NL Central (BIZJOURNALS. 9/6).
