    Tim Tebow contributed to the greatest rise in minor league baseball attendance in 23 years.

    That number is quite appropriate because only one man, Michael Jordan, has done more for minor league baseball crowds than Tebow did this year. And Jordan had the benefit of playing Double-A with bigger ballparks to fill.

    Thanks to Jordan, the Birmingham Barons' 1994 season attendance of 467,868 fans, with an average of 6,884 fans per game, still stands as a franchise and league record. Although Tebow's popularity didn't fill that many seats, his impact is undeniable.
