Major
League Baseball set a record for total attendance and is on track to break its
mark for average attendance.

With one
week left in the regular season, major league teams drew 76,215,082, the
commissioner’s office said Monday, topping last year’s 76,042,787.

The
average of 32,710 was up 4 percent from last year’s final average of 31,423 and
on pace to top the record of 31,632 set in 1994 before a strike interrupted the
season.
