Indianapolis Indians set league attendance record


The Indianapolis Indians had the biggest attendance in all of minor league baseball this season.

637,579 fans came through the turnstiles at Victory Field this season. Indians General Manager Cal Burleson credits the hard work of the team staff, the level of play on the field, and the summer weather as reasons for the big attendance numbers.

Burleson says the Indians had three seasons of higher attendance soon after Victory Field opened. Fans still have a chance to see the Indians play at home, they continue their first round playoff series against Durham after losing game 1 Wednesday night.

The Indians play Game 2 of the series tonight in Durham, followed by a home game Friday.
