Despite decline, Spring Training is still critical

Spring Training brought in an estimated $348 million economic impact to the state. This is down from last year, which is understandable from the sagging economy and the fact that 27 fewer games were played. Nevertheless, nearly $350 million in impact is nothing to shake a stick at. In comparison, it is estimated that the Super Bowl in Glendale brought in $500 million.

Once again, the Cubs lead in per game attendance, but were narrowly beat out by the Giants for largest total attendance because the Cubs played one less game. Regardless, we can see that once again, the Cubs are a significant draw.
