Minor League Baseball

With the Minor League Baseball season ending last Thursday night after the end of regular-season play in the Pioneer League, it's time to tally the numbers for the 2011 season, beginning with attendance sorted by league, compared to 2010.

We'll follow this up with listings of affiliated attendance by average and attendance by total. Summer-collegiate attendance will be covered tomorrow, with independent baseball covered after the Atlantic League season ends.

Here are the complete attendance figures of affiliated baseball teams, as listed by league, with a comparison of 2010 attendance figures. All stats come directly from league websites and last year's Ballpark Digest attendance rankings.
