The combined attendance figures on 5/3 set a season high of 204,529 (it was also the first time this season that combined attendance went over 200,000).
Of note was the Lotte game that attracted 30,008 fans -- the Marines' first full house this season. In addition to that, it seems there were also about 300 fans that couldn't get into the stadium and watched the game on a big screen TV in front of the main gates.
