The Charlotte Knights opened their new season Thursday night at home against the Norfolk Tides. This is the team's second season in BB&T Ballpark, where the Knights relocated last year from their former home in Fort Mill. In 2014,  the Triple-A Knights led the minor leagues in season attendance. An average of about 9,700 fans attended each of 71 home games. The team hopes to attract big crowds to BB&T Ballpark again this season. WFAE's Mark Rumsey discussed the outlook for that with Erik Spanberg, who covers the Knights for the Charlotte Business Journal.
