Every WMBL season thousands of fans make their way to Seaman Stadium for what has truly become a summer must-do in the Foothills.

With their strongest attendance average in team history and their overall fan experience the Okotoks Dawgs is once again ranked fourth North American Collegiate attendance.

Dawgs Vice-President William Gardner says the Dawgs wouldn't have got to where they are without the support of its fans each and every night.

"It's just a tribute to the greatest fans in baseball, Dawgs fans were 3300 strong on average each and every night it's just incredible," he says. "We were delighted to be recognized by Ball Park Biz one of the most elite followers of all things baseball in the baseball world."

Since moving from Calgary the Dawgs organization has grown immensely from just Seaman Stadium itself, adding the Dunvernay Field House and the addition and growth of the Dawgs Academy creating great local talents that end up playing NCAA baseball and more J-Dawg grads have made their way back home in recent summers.

Gardner says it's been quite the ride and there's no plans of slowing down.

"We had out 600 thousandth fan recognition on July 1st, we ended the season with 625,000 fans coming through it's just absolutely incredible. To average 3329 up over 400 fans from last year is truly remarkable."

As always the Dawgs are looking long term in their fan experience Gardner says there's a few ideas that the team has for the future.

"We've had some ideas in mind for a long time of improving our visitors club house at the same time affording our fans with a great fan experience. To build a special patio have some additional concession area and really make a really neat fan experience area similar to some of the suite seating that they offer at spring training in Arizona."

The Dawgs this year added a larger video board and offered online ticket sales for the first time and Gardner says that's a credit for their continuation near the top of the some of best baseball venues to visit in North America.
