MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have set a new franchise record for attendance at spring training.

The Twins say they have set a 16-game season record with 129,453 fans moving through the turnstiles at Hammond Stadium in Ft. Myers, Fla., this year.

The only time the Twins attracted more fans to spring training fans was 2007, when 129,543 fans attended over 17 games.

This year the Twins also set a franchise record for highest per-game attendance during the preseason spring training, drawing an average or nearly 8,100 fans to each game.
