A's surpass 2 million fans for first time since 2005

OAKLAND -- The A's eclipsed 2 million fans at the O.co Coliseum this season for the first time since 2005. It came down to the wire, as they drew 27,989 in their final regular-season home game on Wednesday to bring their season total to 2,003,628.

There were 80 home dates this season for Oakland as opposed to the standard 81, since the A's played a doubleheader against the Mariners on May 7 after their April 4 game was postponed due to a wet field.

That puts Oakland's average attendance for the year at 25,045 per day -- or, if you prefer, 24,736 per game.
