The Daytona Tortugas (High A; Florida State League) welcomed 137,570 fans to Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 2019, setting a new single-season franchise attendance record.
For Thursday’s season finale, the Tortugas hosted the St. Lucie Mets in front of a reported crowd of 2,394 fans. With that figure included, the Tortugas reached a single-season attendance total of 137,570, surpassing their inaugural season of 2015, when they posted a total attendance of 137,224. Prior to the 2015 season, the former Daytona Cubs rebranded to become the Tortugas.
The Florida State League season ended Thursday, after the circuit announced that it would cancel all remaining regular-season games and the postseason in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian’s potential impact on Florida. The Tortugas’ final game of 2019 ended in a loss, as they were defeated 3-0 by the Mets, but the night still allowed them to set a milestone by setting their new single-season attendance record.
