Last season the Phillies incredible sellout streak ended and this year, with the home finale coming Sunday, the Phillies netted just six sellouts all season. In September, they dipped below the 30,000 attendance mark for the first time since April 2008. All of that said, they still topped three million fans for the seventh straight season.
The Phillies total attendance for the 2013 season came in at 3,012,403 which, currently, is good for sixth in all of Major League Baseball and fourth in the National League. Their 37,190 average attendance is eighth in Major League Baseball and fourth in the National League (via ESPN).
That's not too bad considering the product of the field has been less-than-desirable and, at times, completely unwatchable. The Phillies are having their worst season since they went 65-97 in 2000 yet they still averaged 37,190 per game. To put that in perspective, they averaged 19,911 fans per game and registered a grand total of 1,612,769 fans for the entire 2000 season.
Good job Phillies fans, see you in 2014.
