As planned since the Edwin Encarnacion signing in the offseason, attendance numbers have gone up. On Friday night’s game, the temperature at first pitch was 54 degrees and the final attendance number was 24,452 which to put into perspective from last year the Indians had 17,803 on May 13th of 2016.

On May 14th of 2016, the Indians had 15,428 and drew 13,236 the following day to close the series, ironically enough against the Minnesota Twins.

You can compare the numbers following this series in 2017 but I assume that you will easily 5,000 to 10,000 more fans this upcoming weekend compared to last year at this time.

Factor in the weather from that weekend series around this time last year on May 13th an estimated first pitch temperature was around 65 degrees, which is ten degrees warmer than Friday’s first pitch temp.

Great sign that the Cleveland Indians fans appear to back the team no matter what the weather is so far.

Saturday’s game will be at 4:10 PM EST and the Indians will be sending Mike Clevinger to the hill for his second start of the season and will be opposed by the Twins’ Jose Berrios.
