The Dayton Dragons were the top draw among Single-A teams and ranked seventh overall in Minor League Baseball this year.

MiLB’s attendance rankings show all of the top ten teams are Triple-A clubs, with the exception of the Dragons. Thus, Dayton had the best attendance of any MiLB club below the Triple-A level — something the team has done for 11 consecutive years. The Dragons have had the highest attendance of any Single-A team in each of their 17 years of existence.

The Dragons drew a total of 548,574 fans to Fifth Third Field this year, for an average of 8,188 fans per game. Every home game for Dayton was a sellout, which has been the case in every Dragons season. The team has a sellout streak of 1,188 consecutive games, the longest such streak in professional sports history.

The Dragons have been a Reds affiliate for their entire existence. Dayton is located about an hour north of Cincinnati.
