Canadian Baseball Attendance, 2017

Canada

Here is my fourth annual look at baseball attendance across Canada.  Here I cover all levels from Minor League Baseball, independent baseball and collegiate summer leagues.

The figures are the average attendance per game.  An “opening” is a single admission to the ballpark, either it be a single game or a doubleheader.  I also mentioned if average attendance is up or down from last year.

  1. Vancouver Canadians, Northwest League (6303 / 38 openings) – up from 6177
  2. Winnipeg Goldeyes, American Association (5880 / 47 openings) – up from 4817
  3. Okotoks Dawgs, Western Major Baseball League (4104 / 23 openings) – up from 3329
  4. Quebec Capitales, Can-Am League (2838 / 50 openings) – up from 2773
  5. Ottawa Champions, Can-Am League (1971 / 47 openings) – down from 2454
  6. Victoria HabourCats, West Coast League (1899 / 27 openings) – down from 2239
  7. Trois-Rivieres Aigles, Can-Am League (1617 / 49 openings) – down from 1680
  8. Edmonton Prospects, Western Major Baseball League (1670 / 23 openings) – down from 1820
  9. Kelowna Falcons, West Coast League (1129 / 26 openings) – down from 1240
  10. Lethbridge Bulls, Western Major Baseball League (992 / 24 openings) – down from 1056
  11. Thunder Bay Border Cats, Northwoods League (762 / 35 openings) – down from 826
  12. Medicine Hat Mavericks, Western Major Baseball League (736 / 24 openings) – down from 888
  13. Fort McMurray Giants, Western Major Baseball League (618 / 23 openings) – down from 806
  14. Regina Red Sox, Western Major Baseball League (578 / 23 openings) – down from 643
  15. Swift Current 57s, Western Major Baseball League (469 / 23 openings) – up from 273
  16. Moose Jaw Miller Express, Western Major Baseball League (340 / 24 openings) – up from 302
  17. Weyburn Beavers, Western Major Baseball League (302 / 23 openings) – up from 265
  18. Brooks Bombers, Western Major Baseball League (271 / 24 openings) – down from 421
  19. Yorkton Cardinals, Western Major Baseball League (192 / 23 openings) – down from 242
  20. Melville Millionaires, Western Major Baseball League (126 / 23 openings) – up from 72

All data is from each league’s website.

Of the 20 high level baseball teams in Canada (not counting the Blue Jays), eight gained attendance from 2016.  The attendance for the other 12 went down.  Having said that, the top four each experienced an increase in attendance.
