The team said they also led the league in attendance in 2013, finished runner-up to Charlotte in 2014, and was third last season behind Sacramento and Charlotte.

“An accomplishment like this is a testament to our amazing fans that support Indians baseball year after year and our entire staff that helps create such a wonderful atmosphere at Victory Field. It’s a great recipe for success,” said Randy Lewandowski, Indianapolis Indians general manager. “It is our mission to provide memorable and affordable family fun, and the residents of Indianapolis and Central Indiana along with visitors to our great city help continue to make Victory Field the pre-eminent downtown summertime destination. We are very humbled and grateful.”

The 2016 season was the 20th for the Indians at Victory Field. The field surpassed the 12 million fan attendance benchmark this year.

High school football players will use Victory Field for the second annual Victory Field Gridiron Classic, featuring Pike vs. Warren Central on Sept. 23 and Park Tudor vs. Speedway on Sept. 30.
