St. Lucie Mets, SFL Attendance Heating Up Thanks To Tebowmania

Tim Tebow has proven to be a grand slam addition to the St. Lucie Mets roster. 

The Class A Mets affiliate in the Florida State League has already set a single-season home attendance record... with the help of Tebow's name being on the roster. 

The team hit a viewer record Friday night, when 3,399 fans pushed the attendance for the season to 108,057. 

Over the Mets' first 29 seasons, the record attendance mark was 105,379.

St. Lucie is seeing nearly a 50 percent jump in average attendance per game over last season, and the interest in Tebow is a major factor (despite the Mets having the worst record in the FSL's South Division).

And for the first time in four years, the FSL is going to see a rise in attendance.

The league drew 1,056,800 fans last season, and is on pace to top that this year. 

That would end a three-year run of FSL attendance dropping from the previous year.
