New sellout king: Single-A Dayton Dragons - Video - SI.com

This is crazy. When I was a kid, my hometown baseball team was the Rockford Expos. They became the Rockford Royals, then the Rockford Cubbies, and finally the Rockford Reds. I went to a bunch of their games at Marinelli Field in Rockford, and I don't remember any of them having a sellout crowd.

In 2000 they left Rockford to become the Dayton Dragons, and they've sold out every game since the move. I actually went to a Dragons game in 2002, so I guess I can take a tiny bit of credit for this record.
