In 2010, three of the five sellouts occurred on firework evenings, including the 5,472 fans that came out to the ballpark on May 14, the fourth highest single-game attendance total in team history. San Jose fans also filled Municipal Stadium to capacity during the Independence Day weekend fireworks show.
