Attendance At Colorado Rockies Games Increases In 2010

Maury Brown at FanGraphs.com has a breakdown of Major League Baseball's attendance numbers this year. While overall attendance in baseball is down slightly, the Rockies saw an increase of 7.89 percent this year. That's the fourth-best increase in the majors and the best among non-playoff teams. With the Rockies playing for a postseason spot for most of the regular season, this attendance increase comes at no surprise. The question is, will the Rockies be able to keep attendance growing in the coming years? With Ubaldo Jimenez, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki under contract for several more years, the fans should keep filling in Coors Field (and hopefully that includes me at some point).

While the NL West did not lead in total attendance (the six-team NL Central did), the division did have the highest average attendance, according to Brown's graph. The Rockies and the Giants were the only teams in the NL West, however, to post increases in attendance. The Dodgers saw the largest drop-off at -5.3 percent.

The Mets (-18.85 percent) and the Indians (-21.21 percent) were the biggest losers in attendance this year.
