The Winnipeg Goldeyes had another tremendous season by filling the stands at Shaw Park.
The baseball club announced Tuesday that for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons, the Fish led the attendance of all independent professional baseball teams in North America. An average of 5,740 fans were present during each home game, about 200 more than the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League for second place.
“As an organization we worked hard during the off-season to improve the game day experience for our fans,” Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier said. “The attendance numbers show that the hard work was once again appreciated by the best fans in independent baseball, who enjoyed some great baseball and great weather during July and August.”
Out of 48 games this past season in the American Association, the Goldeyes drew in 275,521 people.
