The Los Angels Dodgers Baseball team claimed that they hosted the biggest professional sporting event with fans in attendance since the start of the COVID 19 global pandemic last year with NBC News making the false claim that Tuesday’s Major League Baseball game with the Philidelphia Phillie was the biggest professional sports crowd with 53,078 fans in attendance, This claim, however, is false.

The biggest single-day sporting event with fans in attendance since the start of the pandemic was in fact the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 30th where the Indianapolis Motor Speedway welcomed a sell-out crowd limited at 135,000 race fans.
