LSU is No. 1 in the final 2013 college baseball attendance rankings, marking the 18th straight season in which the Tigers have led the nation in total attendance.

 

LSU posted an NCAA-record total attendance figure of 473,298 in 43 games this season in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field, including 38 regular-season games, three NCAA Regional games and two NCAA Super Regional contests.

 

The Tigers' total attendance mark was nearly 200,000 greater than second-place Mississippi State (281,840).

 

LSU is the only school in NCAA history to exceed 400,000 in baseball attendance. The Tigers also surpassed the 400,000 mark in 2010 (404,916) and in 2012 (472,391).

 

LSU in 2013 was also No. 1 in average attendance for the 17th time in 18 years, recording a figure of 11,006 tickets sold per game.

 

LSU established a school single-game record for actual attendance on June 8 when 11,401 fans witnessed the Tigers' Super Regional win over Oklahoma that clinched a berth in the College World Series.

 

The Tigers' paid attendance figure of 12,727 for the LSU-South Carolina game on April 27 also established a school record.

 

LSU sold over 10,000 tickets for 40 of its 43 games in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field this season.
