your right dude it is a world record for baseball only.The largest attendance for a football(soccer for you guys lol) match ever was 199,854 people - Brazil v. Uruguay in the World Cup at the Maracana Municipal Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, July 1950.And the uk highest for a football match was Scotland v England, 1937, 149,547 ppl.but i'm takin this off topic sorry,anyway still an impressive attendence and pics back it up to pretty damn good
I thought that the last guy was implying that because it was baseball, it didn't hold water as a record. I know there's been plenty of larger crowds for other events.

still hard to belive how you pack 23,000 in the torch end,, i mean a have been to the coliseum several times, and that end is much more smaller than the rest of the stadium,,, maybe by counting the persons that are "standing" on the unused part of the
playing ground behind central and right field.
my guess is that the concrete steeps on the small end of the stadium can hold 12,000 to 14,000 tops,,, still an amazing crowd for baseball,,,

i remember when San Diego used to play in front of 68000 at qualcomm stadium playoff games, incredible athmosphere that was..
I know there were close to 100,000 for the 1984 Olympics packed in there, without using the peristyle end.

Like you pointed out, there were alot of people (hundreds) standing/sitting on the grassy end behind right field for the baseball game.

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (92,516)

Built in 1923 as a tribute to American soldiers lost during World War I, the Coliseum is probably the most historic stadium in the US, as well as a mecca for sports the world over. The Coliseum is the only stadium in the world that has hosted 2 Olympics (1932 and 1984), two Super Bowls (I and VII), and the 1959 World Series. Currently, it's home to the USC Trojans and with the success they've been having this past decade, regularly seat over 90,000 people. But the most people that the Coliseum has ever held was 115,300 people this past March during a exhibition baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox (the Dodgers are celebrating 50 years in Los Angeles this season and played at the Coliseum from 1958 to 1961).

*Fun Fact* The Olympic Torch lights during every 4th quarter of a Trojan game as well as whenever the Olympics are held in another city.

Is this the only stadium to host two games 1932 and 1984.
Hopefully someday it will be the only stadium to host three Olympics, may it never be torn down.

It won't. It's the current home of the University of Southern California (American) Football team. It could use a renovation, but I doubt it will ever be torn down.
