MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers just won the NL Central Division and locked up home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. This is good news for the team with the 10th best attendance in baseball.
The Milwaukee Business Journal reports the numbers have been released of total attendance for every Major League Baseball team and the Brewers cracked the top 10 despite being the smallest metropolitan market in the league.
Although the average league attendance decreased 4.1 percent, the Brewers saw an increase of 11.4 percent. Only the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies had a larger increase.
