    What sort of attendance did they get in Kilgore….and what is the projected attendance in Tyler? I’ve never seen the Pump Jacks listed in your attendance rankings.

      Mark,

      The objective is to at least double attendance and crack the magical 1,000 mark for summer collegiate clubs. As far as reporting on this site, I only include summer collegiate clubs in the Top 50, plus a few honorable mentions. As more and more teams get beyond 1,000, I will expand the list to the Top 75 and Top 100.

      City Population Comparison:
      Kilgore: 14,518, Tyler: 100,223

    What is the reason for this move, low attendance?
