Dodgers are first team to hit 3 million in attendance

|

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers lead the Major Leagues in attendance and surpassed 3 million fans at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night for the 27th time in franchise history and 17th time in the past 18 years. It's the fastest the club has reached 3 million in attendance since 2008, when it reached the milestone on Aug. 19.

The Dodgers saluted Tuesday's sellout crowd of 52,326 from their dugout during the seventh-inning stretch.

"It's amazing. They stuck with us in some pretty tough times early in the season, and for them to get 3 million fans before September is pretty special," said Skip Schumaker. "It feels like it's sold out every night. They are some of the loudest fans I've ever been around. They are super supportive. It's just a testament to ownership committing to us and the fans committing to us. It's a really good combo."
