The final MLB attendance numbers for the 2014 season are in; and Detroit Tigers fans did their part, giving the Tigers the 7th best attendance numbers of the 30 MLB teams.
With an average of 36,014 people packing Comerica Park on a game day, and a season total of 2,917,209, the Spirit of Detroit was on full display. Only the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels, San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, and Los Angeles Dodgers had better attendance figures than the Tigers. The Dodgers nearly graced 4 million fans, totaling 3,782,337 total fans in 2014, making them the kings of attendance this season.

But give yourselves a pat on the back Tigers fans, three AL Central teams attendance numbers rank 25 or below; the Kansas City Royals placed 25th with just under 2 million while the Chicago White Sox ranked 28th and the Cleveland Indians sat 2nd to last (it’s okay to chuckle), only beating out the Tampa Bay Rays for the baseball cellar.
Attendance in Detroit is down compared to last two seasons, though, as over 3 million people packed themselves into the confines of Comerica in 2013 and 2012. But maybe if a hot dog didn’t cost $58 more people would go to the games.
