Good news for Major League Baseball, which had seen low-attendance numbers all season: MLB drew 1,646,600 fans this past weekend, the highest total since July 21-24, 2009.
Sunday's games drew 572,446, the largest single-day attendance since Aug. 14, 2010. Only two other days last season had higher attendance.
Also notable for those numbers is that the Yankees were on the road, so the 50,287-seat stadium wasn't even part of the numbers.
As total attendance numbers have been down for much of the season, it should be noted summer usually draws more fans and in some places, school is only starting to be let out.
Among the other attendance-based numbers sent out in MLB's release were that Wrigley Field set an all-time attendance record for the Cubs' series with the Yankees and Cleveland drew more than 100,000 fans for the first time since 2008. The Red Sox recorded their 666th consecutive sellout, while the Rockies had their second and third sellouts of the season this weekend. The Mariners had their largest three-game series attendance since 2009, and the A's had their first three-game sellout since 2007.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
