This week the Lakeshore Chinooks will hit the 100,000 fan mark at Kapco Park.
Since their inaugural 2012 season, Kapco Park has been the home of the Chinooks. The 100,000 fan will likely pass through its gates on Friday, June 6 or Saturday, June 7.
In 2012, Lakeshore had a total attendance of 46,274. The next season the team had 48,733 fans pass through the entrance gates. These numbers reflect two playoff games in 2013 as well as the regular season games.
Based on these records, Kapco Park is 5,267 fans away from hitting 100,000 fans.
The 100,000 fan will receive an autographed Robin Yount item, four all-star game tickets, four Chinooks tickets, and a first pitch opportunity. The fan will also be recognized on the field the same date the mark occurs.
Keep checking the Chinooks Facebook and Twitter pages to get updates on our attendance tracker.
The Chinooks return home for a four-game homestand on Wednesday, June 4.
