2017 College World Series sets total attendance record

Oh my, what a College World Series it was. For fans viewing the games in-person or on TV, it was a banner year.

As a matter of fact, 2017 marked the year with the highest single-season attendance mark in the 70-plus year history of the College World Series, according to data first reported by The Associated Press. The 357,646 fans who turned out for the 16 games at TD Ameritrade this year, bested the 2015 total of 353,378 guests.

The average attendance at this year’s ballgames — 22,352 visitors — was the highest on record since 2013 (24,392). Total attendance for the CWS in Omaha has surpassed 300,000 visitors every year since reaching that mark in 2006.
