World Baseball Classic, 2009It won’t be a massive increase from 2006, but World Baseball Classic, Inc., MLB, and the MLBPA should be more than happy given the dismal economy to see record attendance for World Baseball Classic ’09.

Tonight’s attendance of 43,630 for the semi-final between Japan and USA was the second-largest crowd in World Baseball Classic history, and the most ever in the United States. Japan and Korea drew 45,640 fans on March 7th at the Tokyo Dome for the largest attendance in WBC history. The 2009 World Baseball Classic has drawn a grand total of 746,562 through 38 games, which surpasses the total attendance of 737,112 during the 2006 World Baseball Classic (39 games).
