Below the Box Score, Week of 4/16/17:


The highlights this week in the attendance front are that seven teams drew over 40,000 once this week, while seven have drawn fewer than 20,000 fans to an individual game (Pirates, Reds, Mariners, A’s, Indians, Marlins, Twins and Rockies). The Pirates, A’s and Reds all averaged fewer than 20,000 for the entire week, with the A’s only drawing 20,140 at their most-attended game this week. Once again, the Dodgers won the week with 49,438 in attendance for Friday’s game. On the other side of things, the Pirates drew only 11,027 for Tuesday’s game against the Reds.

Game time continues to not be off to the greatest of starts with only nine teams averaging games shorter than three hours last week, with the Rockies, Padres, and Braves didn’t play a game longer than three hours all week.

And finally, tempers were muted again this week, with not much tension having built up on the season. Three more ejections and the NL has an overall four to two lead over the AL early in the season.

Now as always, we have included the miscellany and below that the raw data to look at yourself. Note there are three tables, the top being all games, the second home games, and the last being away games. Enjoy!
