The Charlotte Knights continue to dominate fan attendance in the 2019 season. Saturday marked the 9th sell-out crowd of 2019 with 10,485 fans.

Home to the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, it is no secret that BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte has some of the best fans in all of Minor League Baseball.

Ranking #1 out of 161 teams, the Knights won the races for most overall fans (619,639) and earned best average attendance (8,980) for 2018.

Not only do the Knights have the most dedicated fan base, but they also have the #1 ballpark in all of the minor leagues per Baseball America. Situated in Uptown Charlotte, BB&T Ballpark opened April 10, 2010, totaling $48.7 million in construction costs. Since opening in 2010, the Knights have consistently maintained attendance at 90% stadium capacity.

Fans across minor league baseball have grown to love views from the Knights stadium, a special thanks to Laura Wolff.
