Cleveland Municipal Stadium, 1993

The 80,000-seat Municipal Stadium could feel very empty, even in a good baseball season. This picture from 1993 actually reflects the best--and last--season for Indians attendance at the old stadium after the brief spike in 1948-49. Indians attendance, which hit its highest average attendance--nearly 34,000-- in its World Series championship year of 1948, plummeted to less than 7,000 per game on average by 1963. It never topped 20,000 again until 1993. The next year the Indians moved to Jacobs Field, where average game attendance soared above 40,000 for several years.
