Spring Training 2012: Salt River Fields Breaks Attendance Records

The Arizona Diamondbacks' spring training complex, Salt River Fields set a spring training total attendance record on Thursday.

According to a press release by the organization, the team's 12th spring training sellout in Thursday's exhibition against the Cleveland Indians broke the complex's total attendance record with a 359,326 total.

The Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies currently have a combined six games remaining at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. The previous mark was set by these same two teams in 2011 at 359,308.

We're very proud to have passed last year's attendance record thanks to the best Spring Training fan experience in baseball," said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. (Via: MLB.com)

Arizona's single game attendance average of 11,662 is the highest in all of baseball. The complex is around 20 miles away from the Diamondbacks' regular season home, Chase Field in Phoenix.
