All-Star Game Attendance

Major League Baseball All-Star Game Attendance Data

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive list of every Midsummer Classic ranked by attendance with game number, ballpark information and a link to each All-Star Game page (where additional information can be found).

"The 1930s also saw an effort to apply the principles of business to baseball, especially in the area of advertising and promotional techniques. The first major breakthrough came in 1933 with the institution of the All-Star Game." - Richard Crepeau in Baseball: America's Diamond Mind (1980)
