RailRiders Attendance Down from Last Year

MOOSIC — The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders wrapped up their season Monday. The average attendance for the club’s 68 home games at PNC field was 5,906.

According to the official website of Minor League Baseball, that ranks 11th out of 14 International League teams.

The average attendance was down 503 fans a game from last year, when the new PNC Field debuted. It’s down nearly 3,000 a game from the first season the New York Yankees were made the club’s parent team in 2007.

It is still slightly higher than the average attendance during the club’s final season as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons in 2006, which was 5,534.
