Indians Notch Highest Attendance in Minors
The Indianapolis Indians have recorded the highest 2016 attendance in Minor League Baseball. The organization last led the MiLB in 2013 and has finished in the top three the last two seasons.
The Indians’ total of 636,888 beat out the Charlotte Knights by more than 17,000.
In a statement, General Manager Randy Lewandowski said "an accomplishment like this is a testament to our amazing fans that support Indians baseball year after year and our entire staff that helps create such a wonderful atmosphere at Victory Field. It’s a great recipe for success. It is our mission to provide memorable and affordable family fun, and the residents of Indianapolis and Central Indiana along with visitors to our great city help continue to make Victory Field the preeminent downtown summertime destination."
The Indians played their 20th season in Victory Field in 2016. In that time, the organization has out-drawn all other Minor League teams except for the Buffalo Bison.
The next events at the stadium will be the second annual Victory Field Gridiron Classic high school football games September 23 between Pike and Warren Central and September 30 featuring Park Tudor and Speedway.
