“Fans in LA love the Dodgers,” reports Maury Brown for Forbes. And he cites the sales figures to prove it.

In fact, last Thursday, “the club announced that they have already exceeded three million tickets sold for the 2015 season, an incredible feat that makes it the earliest that milestone has been reached in franchise history.”

Here are some other stats from the Forbes article illustrating Dodgers fans bleed blue:

• Last year, the club topped all of Major League Baseball in attendance … an average of 46,695 over 81 games. That filled Dodger Stadium’s cavernous seating capacity of 56,000 by 83.4 percent. That lofty attendance figure was the second-highest ever for the club coming in second to only 3,857,036 in 2007.

• The Dodgers have reached the three million attendance mark on 28 occasions, including 18 times in the last 19 years.

• All the Dodgers have to do in 2015 is bring 782,337 more through the gate by the end of the upcoming season to meet last season’s attendance.

Baseball season will be in full swing around the country starting April 5. Last week, we looked at how you can trade up: Swap a ho-hum night for an exciting night of baseball without spending more cash.
