Average Attendance Figures in the New York-Penn League 2005-2019

Monongalia County Ballpark - Granville, WV
I have been concerned about the declining attendance at New York-Penn League games for some time. Each city in the league experiences unique challenges as they compete for entertainment dollars in their community.

Below is a table showing the annual average attendance numbers in the league over time, going back to 2005. I'll leave the analysis to someone else.

See you at the ballpark.
