Between major league baseball's spring training and regular season and the 202 teams playing in the various minor and independent leagues that tracked attendance, ticket sales to the sport's pro parks in 2016 were 119,812,307.
That total was mostly derived from the box offices at the 246 regularly-used ballparks in the four categories we've tracked, although a few other ballparks contributed small amounts to the total count. In 2016, they included Fort Bragg Field (one Atlanta Braves home game) and Holman Stadium in Vero Beach, FL (one Brevard County Manatees home game).
The 119,812,307 total isn't completely exhaustive -- playoff games and some exhibitions were excluded -- but here's what was counted: all regular season games in major, minor and independent league baseball, plus all spring training games played in spring training ballparks in Arizona and Florida. Based on that criteria, tickets were taken at ballpark gates for 14,468 game dates during the 2016 professional baseball season. The breakdowns for each level of play are found on this page.
