OMAHA–The crowd for the Louisiana State-North Carolina game has set an all-time College World Series attendance record and is the second-largest crowd in NCAA history.
Then why, you ask, are there so many empty seats? Call it creative counting.
The official crowd of 30,422 counts fans who attended the start of the game Thursday as well as the resumption of the game Friday. Seems like cheating to me, but if Lou Spry announces it over the press box PA system, it must be true.
The only larger crowd for a college baseball game, Lou says, was the March 2006 game between San Diego State and Houston at Petco Park.
In case you’re wondering, the cumulative total for the CWS is now 216,376, which is just more than 10,000 fans behind last year’s record pace.
