Education Days Pack Minor League Baseball Ballparks on Wednesday

Education Days ruled the day at minor league ballparks on Wednesday. The Toledo Mud Hens topped all teams in attendance by recording their third sellout of the season on “School Celebration Day,” which featured $5 tickets for students and teachers, and optional $4 bag lunches. The Bowie Baysox packed them in as well, drawing 7,825 fans and finishing second on “College Fair Day” for middle school and high school students.

In total, eight of the top 10 teams yesterday opened their gates in the morning to welcome schoolchildren for some form of an education day promotion—the Hartford Yard Goats, for example, featured an anti-bullying day for school children. Education Days make for a long day at the ballpark for players and staff, but seem to be a consistent draw for teams and are a staple of spring schedules.

Below is a list of the top 20 attendance figures in the minor leagues.
