Work has started to transform the Los Angeles Coliseum into a baseball stadium for the Dodgers’ exhibition game against the world champion Boston Red Sox on March 29. The game is expected to draw the largest baseball crowd in U.S. history. There have been 90,505 tickets sold, the most for any baseball game since 1959, and around 25,000 standing room tickets go on sale Saturday.
The old record was set during the 1959 World Series against the White Sox. They had crowds of 92,394, 92,650 and 92,706 for the three games. Just thought you'd be interested. Thanks to the AP for the story and Baseball-Reference.com for the actual numbers.
