MLB Attendance - DETAILS
Select the image to view attendance for
each of the 30 clubs (PDF)

With Game 163 in the books – the final regular season game at the Metrodome, a record breaking 54,088 – the book can now be completely closed on MLB’s 2009 regular season attendance picture (the Metrodome’s story will continued to be told after beating the Tigers 6-5 for the AL Central title in thrilling fashion). Baseball completed the season with a total attendance of 73,418,529, down 6.58 percent from a total of 78,591,116 in 2008. The total attendance figure will rank as the fifth highest in MLB history. In another measure of attendance, ballparks saw an average of 30,338 over 2,420 games, down 6.77 percent from the 32,543 in average attendance over 2,415 games last season.

The AL Central tiebreaker game between the Tigers and Twins at the Metrodome was the largest attended game in the facilitiy's history. The extra 54,088 in attendance pushed the Twins from 15th to 14th overall in attendance for 2009.

Two franchises, the reigning World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox, set all-time club records, drawing 3,600,693 and 3,062,699, respectively. The Los Angeles Dodgers led the Major Leagues in attendance with 3,761,669 for an average of 46,440, an increase of .83 percent from last season. With the Dodgers garnering the highest level of attendance this year, it marks the first time since ’04 that the Yankees will have attendance below 4 million. The last time the Yankees ranked lower than first in total attendance was 2002 when the Seattle Mariners held the #1 position.

As detailed in our look at all 30 clubs on Monday, 22 of the 30 clubs ended the season with their average attendance lower than their 2008 figures.

(For a complete breakdown, see Inside The Numbers: Final 2009 MLB Regular Season Attendance)

Nine clubs drew more than three million fans (Dodgers, New York Yankees, Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers) and 10 clubs averaged more than 35,000 fans per game (the above clubs plus the San Francisco Giants). Last year, nine clubs drew more than three million, with two (the Yankees and Mets) drawing over 4 million.

When factoring in the smaller seating capacities of the new ballparks for the Yankees and Mets, along with not filling them completely, attendance is actually down 5.2 percent. The two New York franchises accounted for nearly 30 percent of the total decline in attendance this year.

See the master table from our “Inside” article showing 2008 compared to 2009 for each of the clubs.
