Another attendance story, and the one that probably means the most for evaluating the health of a team: we list independent teams by average attendance.

Here are the attendance figures from the five major independent leagues, as ranked by average. We have a new leader: the Winnipeg Goldeyes are now on top of the heap after a slight decrease in average attendance registered by the Long Island Ducks.
