The Great Lakes Loons (Low A; Midwest League) achieved an attendance milestone Friday, welcoming a single-game franchise record 6,671 fans to Dow Diamond.
The Loons hosted the West Michigan Whitecaps Friday in front of a reported crowd of 6,671 fans. That set a new single-game attendance record for the team, eclipsing the previous high mark of 6,383 that was set on June 14, 2018, when the Loons were squaring off against the Whitecaps.
Overall, last week’s three-game series between the two teams was a busy period for the Loons. Over Wednesday-Friday, a total of 15,634 fans (average 5,211) passed through the gates of Dow Diamond.
Friday’s attendance record was set as the Loons dropped a 1-0 contest to the Whitecaps. The two teams played a 0-0 game until the top of the sixth, when the Whitecaps’ Corey Joyce broke the deadlock with a ground ball single to left field.
