Ballpark Digest

We conclude our listings of 2013 Minor League Baseball attendance with a ranking of the 176 teams by average, perhaps the most accurate way to assess the health of a team.

This concludes our listing of 2013 attendance for affiliated teams. Summer-collegiate attendance has already been posted, with independent baseball covered after the Atlantic League season ends.

Here are the complete announced attendance figures of affiliated baseball teams, as listed by average, with a comparison of 2011 attendance figures. All stats come directly from league websites and last year's Ballpark Digest attendance rankings.
