Dirtbags Baseball Breaks Attendance Records During 2018 Season
Long Beach State Baseball recorded its highest ever attendance total this past season, with an average of over 2,000 fans per home game.
LONG BEACH, Calif. - The 2018 baseball season saw more fans attend Dirtbags games at Bohl Diamond at Blair Field than in any season in program history. A total attendance of 61,179 was reported for Long Beach State’s home games this season. That includes a record number of 865 season ticket holders, up 210 percent from a season ago.
LBSU’s per-game attendance was 2,110 fans, which ranked second in the Big West and 35th in the nation. Among non-Power Five schools, Long Beach State’s average home attendance was the sixth highest in the country. It’s the first time the Dirtbags have averaged over 2,000 fans per game, eclipsing last season’s average of 1,681 attendees during the regular season.
The Dirtbags also had some of the best-attended series in program history this season, recording two of the top four series all-time and having three of the top 10 highest-attended weekends. The final series of the 2018 season against Cal State Fullerton brought 7,829 fans to Bohl Diamond at Blair Field, which is the second-highest series attendance in Long Beach State history and the most in a decade.
The trend of increased support from LB Nation continues, as per-game attendance has now increased in each of the last five seasons. Comparing last year’s regular season attendance figures to 2018’s numbers, there was a 52 percent increase in total attendance with just five additional home events.
