Even though the numbers were down in a number of the 16 cities with teams, the Mexican League topped the 3,000,000 mark in attendance for the 2009 season. The Liga averaged 3,807 fans over 809 games for a total of 3,079,774.

Monclova led the LMB with 430,059 turnstile clicks, or an average of 8,114 per game over 53 openings. Reynosa welcomed back Mexican League baseball after the Tijuana franchise was shifted there last winter by bringing in 6,556 people per night for a total of 334,369. Laguna was third on the list with 300,722 fans, averaging 6,014.

At the other end of the spectrum, Minatitlan and Tabasco were the only two teams to fail to draw 100,000 fans. The Petroleros pulled in 91,746 for the season, averaging 1,872 fanaticos per outing. Things were worse in Tabasco, where the Olmecas brought in just 60,312 people to the ballpark in Villahermosa to finish last among all Class AAA teams with an average of 1,256 per date.
