Major league attendance increased 4.6 percent in 2007, the year the Mitchell Report was released. The years 2004-2007, when the steroid revelations came hot and heavy, were the four highest-attendance seasons in history. Last season was the fifth-highest, with a total attendance of 75 million. Team values continue to rise, reaching an average of $744 million this year, according to Forbes. The league agreed to television deals last year that will pay $12.4 billion over eight years, more than double the value of the previous contracts.
