We have another attendance record to report: the Lakeland Flying Tigers (High Class A; Florida State League) established a new single-season record at Joker Marchant Stadium, drawing 64,396 total fans in 2014.
The previous mark was set in 2010, when the team drew 64,010.
This marks the 65th season Lakeland has been a member of the Florida State League (FSL), and it also marks the 48th season Lakeland has been a Detroit Tigers affiliate, the longest affiliation in Minor League Baseball. Lakeland first began playing in the FSL in 1919.
“This accomplishment is a credit to the hard work and dedication of our staff as well as our passionate fans,” said Flying Tigers General Manager Zach Burek. “We are extremely proud to be able to offer affordable family fun to our community.”
