Last season was the T-Bones’ fourth straight with more than 260,000 fans at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. The T-Bones drew 265,596 fans in 2013, an average of 5,420 a game, up from 5,212 in 2012.
During their 11 years in Kansas City, Kan., the T-Bones have a total attendance of 2,823,734. That means it’s likely the franchise will reach three million in total attendance at some point in 2014.
“I’m very proud of our front office’s dedication and innovation. It’s a testament that fans have so strongly embraced our brand of affordable, family-friendly entertainment,” T-Bones president Adam Ehlert said in a release. “We’ll continue working hard so that we get to welcome that three-millionth fan in 2014.”
The T-Bones will play host to Fargo-Moorhead for a four-game series during Memorial Day weekend (May 22-25). The remaining holiday portion of the schedule has the T-Bones at home on July 4 (the start of a three-game series against Sioux Falls) and on Labor Day, Sept. 1, for a series finale against St. Paul and the conclusion of the 2014 regular season.
“We’re looking forward to our 12th season in Kansas City,” T-Bones vice president/general manager Chris Browne said in a release. “I think our fans will be excited about this schedule and our front office is already working on some notable promotions for 2014.”
