Ballpark Digest

Our first independent-baseball attendance ranking of the day: Here are 2013 independent attendance numbers, listed by league.

These numbers are for the top indy leagues who actually report attendance figures; there are others who do not. (Yeah, we're looking at you, Freedom, Pacific and Pecos leagues.) There was stability in the four major independent leagues, with only one new team and no other franchise shifts.

 Coming up: independent by total and independent by average.
