The Evansville Icemen, a minor league hockey team, surprised a lot of people, including me by drawing crowds as large as 9,403 for a game last season.
When I read that they needed an average attendance of 3,000 to make money under their lease in the new Ford Center, I didn’t think they could do it, considering the Evansville Triplets, a top-level (Class AAA) minor league baseball team averaged only about half that attendance in the late 1970s and early ’80s and baseball is more popular in southwestern Indiana than hockey is.
