NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Major League Baseball has drawn its biggest weekend crowds in three years, boosted by sellouts at Wrigley Field, Fenway Park and the Coliseum.

Nearly 1.65 million fans saw games Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That made for the top attendance during a regular, 45-game weekend since Sept. 26-28, 2008.

The Chicago Cubs set a three-game attendance record by drawing over 126,000 fans to see the New York Yankees.

The Oakland Athletics sold out all three games against the visiting San Francisco Giants. Boston, Seattle and Colorado also had sellouts for interleague matchups.

Even the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are suffering from a major reduction in attendance drew an average of 38, 971 fans for a 3-game series against the struggling Houston Astros.

The 44,665 tickets sold for the Dodgers Father’s Day game was the most tickets sold since their April 3rd game against the Giants.
