SOUTH BEND, FORT WAYNE -

Two Indiana Minor League Baseball teams have wrapped up their regular seasons with strong attendance numbers. The South Bend Cubs broke a franchise record for attendance, while the Fort Wayne TinCaps are reporting the second-highest fan total in the team's history.

The Cubs welcomed 354,070 fans, breaking last season's record of 350,803. This year marks the fourth consecutive year the team has set an attendance record at Four Winds Field. The team also reported a single-game attendance average of 5,285 fans per game. Since buying the team in 2011, owner Andrew Berlin has invested more than $8 million into the city-owned facility.

In March, crews broke ground on The Ivy at Berlin Place near the stadium, a $22 million mixed-use property set to include more than 120 apartments as well as retail space.

The TinCaps finished the 2017 regular season with a total attendance of 409,253, which ranks only behind the 2016 total of 413,701. The San Diego Padres Triple-A affiliate drew an average of 5,931 fans per game. The team calls this season's total especially impressive since it came "during the wettest year to date in Fort Wayne's history as a city."
