Cubs Attendance 2012: MLB's Top Road Draw, Chicago Ranks No. 8

When the Chicago Cubs have played on the road in 2012, they've brought more fans to the ballpark than any other team in baseball so far, as Jon Greenberg of ESPN Chicago notes. The Cubs also rank eighth in overall attendance so far this season despite being in last place in the NL Central.

Each time the Cubs have played on the road this season, 39,346 fans have come out to see them on average. That's easily the best figure among baseball's 30 teams, averaging over 3,000 more per game than the second-place Milwaukee Brewers.

Rounding out the top five in road attendance are the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres. Sample sizes are small so far, but fans have come out in droves to see the Cubs so far in 2012.
