Over 40,000 fans showed up at Miyazaki Prefecture Sports Park. That eclipsed the current training season's previous high of 37,000 set by the Yomiuri Giants on Sunday.
That seems like a lot, considering it was a weekday. I wonder how many more fans will head down to Miyazaki during the coming weekend.
