Attendance milestones to note: the El Paso Chihuahuas (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) welcomed the 1-millionth fan to Southwest University Park this weekend, while the Quad Cities River Bandits (Low A; Midwest League), set a modern single-game record.
In El Paso, the Chihuahuas welcomed Severo Barreras Saturday night as the 1-millionth fan to Southwest University Park. Barreras was accompanied by his family. The team opened Southwest University Park last season.
In Davenport, the River Bandits drew the franchise’s largest home crowd in at least 14 season, as 8,207 fans crammed Modern Woodmen Park to see Quad Cities defeat the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, 7-1.
We expect to be reporting on many more attendance records in coming weeks.
