BB&T Ballpark by the numbers

After 4,487 attended last night’s Dash game against Myrtle Beach, BB&T Ballpark surpassed the one millionth fan mark in it’s young history, making it the fastest a High-A ballpark has never reached that milestone. The ballpark has now hosted 1,004,042 fans in its three plus seasons.

More than one million fans have visited BB&T Ballpark since it opened on April 13, 2010.

Those aren’t the only impressive numbers this ballpark boasts. Since the ballpark opened, no team in High-A baseball has had more fans come through its gates. Here’s the top five:

1. Winston-Salem Dash: 1,004,042

2. Frederick Keys: 970,988

3. Wilmington Blue Rocks: 936,405

4. Lake Elsinore Storm: 737,971

5. Myrtle Beach Pelicans: 708,164

The Dash have also posted the best home record among all full season minor league teams since BB&T Ballpark opened. Here’s the top five:

1. Winston-Salem Dash (High-A, Chicago White Sox): 143-87

2. Savannah Sand Gnats (Low-A, New York Mets): 138-88  3.0 GB

3. Columbus Clippers (Triple-A, Cleveland Indians): 141-92 3.5 GB

4. Durham Bulls (Triple-A, Tampa Bay Rays): 142-96 5.0 GB

5. Tennessee Smokies (Double-A, Chicago Cubs): 137-92 5.5 GB

The Dash will try and improve that minor league-leading record even more tonight as the Potomac Nationals roll in to BB&T Ballpark for the first of a three-game series. Join me here at 6:45 for the Pregame Dash. First pitch is scheduled for 7. Talk to you then!
