(UP)—The most astounding baseball palron- :igc of nil lime made it a virtual certainty today that more than half of the 10 major league teams will set new attendance records for a single campaign, long before the 194C season is ended. Tlie Now York Yankees, who already have passed every existing American league 'mark for a single season, will set a new major league attendance figure today when Iliey meet the St. Ixjiiis Browns In n double header. The Yankees, with. 1,480,715 paid admissions to date, will pass the all-time major league high of 1,4I!!>,1GG set by tlie Chicago Cubs of 1929. And with 20 more home games lo play, there is a reasonable expectancy that the Yankees will play lo 'more than 2.375,001) fans for the season unless there is a sharp drop In crowds from here out. The tremendous upsurge In crowds is general with even the hopelessly outclassed second division clubs shurliiK tlie Increase;! revenue according lo a United Prer.s attendance survey. To dale, the eight American League teams have played to 5.G33,- 4f>:i fans and within another week should go beyond the final 1045 league totals of S.Hfiii.BOI). The same story holds for the National League clubs which have drawn '1.858,342 paying fans to date, compared with 5.258,338 for the entire 1D15 campaign. Four clubs, the Yankees and Boston lied Sox In the American League and Ihe surprising Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Braves in the National League, have topped their all-time previous high attendance totals witti better than a third of the season to go.
