INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indianapolis Indians broke their attendance record on Saturday night.

The team had 15,250 fans show up at the final home game of the season. This season was the most well-attended in franchise history with 660,289 fans.

The @IndyIndians tweeted the following Saturday night:

Jon Glesing, Senior Marketing Manager of the Indians, says their increased attendance is because there’s more here than just baseball.

“We’ve done a great job with introducing new programs like kids eat free on Sundays, Friday fireworks, dollar menus on Mondays – all things that kind of lets fans know they can come to the ballpark and they know there’s going to be something of value, something of fun in addition to the great product on the field,” Glesing said.

The record goes back to 1998. Last year, the Indians led all 176 teams in the minor leagues in attendance.

Fireworks showered the field after Saturday’s last home game as a big thank you to the loyal fans who showed up to support the players game after game.
