With 613,075 visitors in 2013 - including 20 consecutive sellouts to conclude the year -- Coca-Cola Park remains Minor League Baseball's most visited venue since debuting in 2008. By crossing the 600,000 plateau yet again, the IronPigs have the exclusive distinction of being the only Minor League franchise to eclipse the elusive 600,000 attendance barrier for each of the last six campaigns. The 9,016 per-game average for the club's official 68 home games marks the fifth straight season the IronPigs have averaged over 9,000 fans per game.

Since 2008, the IronPigs have now drawn 3,820,124 fans to Coca-Cola Park and averaged 9,031 per game - a number that drastically exceeds Coca-Cola Park's fixed seating capacity of 8,089. Every seat in the ballpark has been sold for 341 of the 423 all-time regular season games with 114 all-time capacity crowds. 

The IronPigs were scheduled to host 72 games last season but were limited to 68 due to rain. Without the postponements, the IronPigs were on a pace to surpass their all-time single-season attendance mark of 645,905 established in 2010. 

In 2013 alone, Coca-Cola Park and the IronPigs boasted a bevy of successful promotions, highlighted by a foam finger giveaway on Prostate Cancer Awareness Night, a funeral giveaway on Celebration of Life Night and the adoption of the first-ever urinal video game system in North America, leading to recognition in numerous national publications including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Sports Illustrated.

Coca-Cola Park debuted in 2008 and became an overnight sensation and drew rave reviews for its intimacy, fan-friendly atmosphere and architectural design. Furthermore, FoxNews.com ranked Lehigh Valley IronPigs fans as the best fans in all of Minor League Baseball.
