Set New Paid Attendance Record

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced that they have set a new paid attendance record, passing last season's mark of 3,758,545 fans. Ticket sales for the 2007 season are now just over 3,760,000, with 12 home games still remaining in the regular season.

  "The Dodgers are extremely proud to announce a new paid attendance record," said Dodger Chief Operating Officer Marty Greenspun. "Dodger fans are the best in all of sports and this once again proves their devotion. This is an exciting time for the team and the fans as we make the push to play in October."

Through 69 games this season, the Dodgers are averaging 47,432 fans, the best mark in the National League. There have been 11 sellouts and 25 games with crowds of more than 50,000 fans.

On July 3 of this season, the Dodgers became the first franchise in history to reach 175 million in cumulative attendance. Since 1901, when Major League Baseball began tracking official attendance, the Dodgers have played before more fans than any other sports franchise in history, as they now have a cumulative attendance of more than 176 million.
