Capacity for Progressive Field is 43,545. The announced attendance was 40,631, or 2,914 short of capacity. Sellout? In speaking with the Indians, they explained part of the difference by saying their sellout threshold varies, but 41,721 is a good barometer, getting us to 1.090 shy of a sellout, but not to capacity. Why the difference? According to the Indians, that threshold was broken with comps related to several factors including rainout exchanges, Club Seat benefit for season ticket holders, group leader tickets, fan appreciation coupons from last Sept, etc.

A Forbes article looks at the way sports teams fudge attendance numbers. Kinda interesting. With all the crap Cleveland fans took for low attendance in the beginning of the year, I wouldn't be surprised if the FO decided to round up for a PR win.
