Worcester Bravehearts Break Own Attendance Record AGAIN

Oops, they did it again.

The Worcester Bravehearts welcomed 5,157 fans to Hanover Insurance Park on Thursday morning for the team’s second Baseball in Education Day. 

The attendance number broke the previous record set on Wednesday of 4,933. 

Worcester also broke the previous Future’s Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) record of highest attendance in consecutive games with nearly 11,000 in attendance — which was previously 8,514. 

“I am extremely proud of this city and organization for everything that has occurred over the past week” said Bravehearts General Manager Dave Peterson. “We have had to bring in extra seats to accommodate for the amount of fans that have come to the park over the past two games. We truly appreciate the love and support from our fans who are proving that Hanover Insurance Park is where Worcester spends Summer.”

Before this season, the previous record for attendance at any event at Hanover Insurance Park was 4,439, which was recorded during last season’s Baseball in Education day.

Through the first four games of the regular season, the Bravehearts have sold out three of those games. 1,646 fans attended opening night and 3,363 attended the first Friday Night Firework game of the season. The average attendance for this season is currently at 3,775 fans. 

The Bravehearts return to action on Saturday night against the Brockton Rox.
