Frisco RoughRiders Break Records During Big Homestand

Just when it seemed like it could not get any better for the Frisco RoughRiders, after the Texas League franchise topped 10,000 fans on back-to-back nights over the weekend, they managed to out-do themselves on Monday.

During an Education Day promotion—are you sensing a trend?—the RoughRiders drew 11,844 screaming schoolchildren to Dr. Pepper Ballpark, good for the largest day-game crowd and the fifth-largest overall in team history. In total, Frisco drew 40,018 fans during its five-game homestand.

Rounding out the top five in minor league attendance yesterday were the Columbus Clippers (10-cent hot dog night), Charlotte Knights (Bark in the Ballpark), Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Dog Days at Coca-Cola Park) and Round Rock Express ($1 hot dogs and sodas).

Here are the top 20 teams in minor league attendance from last night compiled into one handy-dandy chart:
