Sixteen seasons, over 1,100 games and just under 10 million fans have been celebrated at Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express. During the team’s next homestand, starting July 4, the 10 millionth fan is expected to walk through the gates to a celebration worthy of such a strong number.
When the 10 millionth fan walks through the gates, he/she will receive a prize pack valued at over $26,000 that features four Express season tickets for the next 10 years, a Dell Venue 10 tablet, 10 SeaWorld day passes, 10 cases of Budweiser products, 10 cases of Pepsi products, 10 Andy’s Frozen Custard Treat Cards, 10 $10 membership coupons to A+ Federal Credit Union, and 10 $10 gift cards to Buffalo Wild Wings, Chuy’s, Collins Dermatology, Corner Bakery Café, Cost Cutters, H-E-B, Jack Allen’s Kitchen and Whataburger!
Additionally, the first 4,000 fans in attendance will receive a t-shirt that reads “I am one of 10 million strong,” presented by A+ Federal Credit Union, Dell and Gold’s Gym.
The Express has averaged a total of 647,067 fans a year over the last 15 seasons and 9,117 fans a game. Their highest season attendance was in 2005 when they drew 700,277 fans in their first year as a Triple-A franchise. The Express set, and subsequently broke, Texas League attendance records for each of their five seasons as a Double-A affiliate for the Houston Astros (2000-04). Consistently one of the best-attended franchises in Minor League Baseball, the Express has been in the top five in attendance of all MiLB teams 14 of 15 seasons.
