2.3 Million People Attend MiLB in NC

Minor League Baseball is a real economic force in North Carolina. Nearly 2.3 million people attend games in the state annually.

That’s enough to fill the gigantic Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, NC, 12 times over, or about double the attendance at NASCAR races in North Carolina if every seat is sold.

The nine teams in North Carolina are relatively small businesses with a collective wallop to the state economy across all regions.
