Below the Box Score, Week of 6/19/17: More 40,000+ Games Than <20000!


After a week off, this week gets back to setting a couple of new records on the season.

The Rays and A’s were both on the road this week which meant overall attendance looked pretty good. Only the White Sox, Pirates, Twins, Padres, Phillies, and Marlins drew fewer than 20,000 in a single game last week with the White Sox and Padres averaging below the 20,000 mark.  For the first time since Opening Day, there were more teams that drew 40,000+ fans to a game than teams that drew fewer than 20,000 fans. The Rockies, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Angels, Reds, Giants, Astros, and Mets all drew above the 40k mark, with the Rockies, Blue Jays, and Cardinals averaging above the mark.

The NL narrowed the ejections race, winning this week 4-3 to narrow the overall AL lead to 37-33. The City of Chicago had nearly half of the ejections last week with two on the South Side and a rare top of the first inning ejection for the Cubs’ Joe Maddon.

 

On the time of game front, the average popped up a bit to 3:10, with all but two teams playing a game shorter than three hours while every team played a game longer than three hours last week.

Weather was pretty uneventful as well, sitting in an average range between 73-93 degrees with no games windier than 18 MPH.

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!
