(CLEARWATER, Fla.) – In their 69th and final home opening of the season, the Clearwater Threshers of the Florida State League set a new record for single season attendance. Tonight’s total of 7,054 sent the team’s 2012 attendance to a record 177,297 fans. That number eclipsed the 2011 mark and previous high of 177,117.

“It is a tribute to our hard-working Clearwater staff and beautiful ballpark, but most importantly reflects on the fans here in Clearwater and Pinellas County,” said John Timberlake, Threshers General Manager.
“We started last fall with a great game plan and have been able to follow it through,” Timberlake continued. “But the real difference is the fans. They have just been amazing again this season.”
The Threshers currently own an overall record of 71-60, and are 35-30 in the season’s second half. “We have been fortunate in that the Phillies organization has provided a quality product on the field,” Timberlake said. “[Manager] Chris Truby and his coaches have done an outstanding job this year.”
The Threshers will play their final game of the regular season on the road in Dunedin on Sunday at 5:00pm.
