Through Monday, attendance in Major League Baseball remained flat compared to last year, drawing an average of 30,312 compared to 30,281 on the same date last season (an increase of 0.1 percent), but several ballparks around the league saw record numbers this past weekend.

On Saturday, the Phillies-Nationals game at Nationals Park drew 44,685 – the first sellout of the entire season at the ballpark – and the largest crowd at Nationals Park history surpassing the Red Sox-Nats game from June of 2009, While no numbers are captured to prove it out, the high volume turnout for the Nationals was, in large part, due to Phillies fans that made the trek to DC to see the game.

Also on Saturday, a paid attendance figure of 42,374 witnessed the Cardinals-Cubs game at Wrigley Field. It was the largest crowd at Wrigley since 45,777 saw the 1978 season opener against the Pirates.

Finally on Sunday, a sellout of 43,388 in paid attendance was part of Sunday's Indians-Tigers game at Comerica Park. According to the Tigers, the three-game series over the weekend saw total paid attendance of 132,239, the largest number for a three-game series in Comerica Park’s 12-year history. The previous record of 131,463 was set during an 2008 series against the White Sox.
