A franchise-record 16,229 fans flocked to Isotopes Park Thursday evening, establishing a new mark for single-game attendance.
The throng is the first of what could very well be a record-setting series as the Isotopes host the Iowa Cubs in a four-game set during the holiday weekend. Thursday's game featured a post-game fireworks extravaganza and was the first of three straight nights of post-game fireworks at Isotopes Park.
"All we can say is, 'Wow'," said Isotopes general manager John Traub. "What an unbelievable night this was. It is certainly among the most memorable events we've ever hosted at Isotopes Park. We can't thank the fans enough for their continued support of their beloved Isotopes."
Thursday was the second time in the Isotopes' 11-year history that they surpassed the 16,000-mark in a single game.
