OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Women’s College World Series set an all-time attendance record this year and has set television viewership marks.

Total attendance was 78,078, including four of the top 10 sessions ever. The previous record of 75,960 was set in 2012.

Wednesday’s attendance of 7,680 for Game 3 of the Florida-Michigan series was the fourth-highest total for a deciding game.

The event also has generated higher TV ratings than usual. ESPN says Game 1 of the series was the most watched for a first game with more than 1.5 million viewers. Game 2 got a 1.2 overnight rating, the highest for a college softball game in eight years. The overnight rating was up 37 percent for Game 1 and 33 percent for Game 2.
