MLB 2018 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 8/20: The NL Strikes Back!

The National League strikes back this week with seven ejections to the AL’s one, meaning we once again have separation in the season ejection rate.

Attendance continued to be high, reaching the highest level of the season, with no games under 10,000 in attendance all week!  Only six teams managed below 20,000, while seven managed over the 40,000 mark.  Even still, the A’s managed to be outdrawn by minor league games last week:

 

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Oakland (outdrawn by 10 AAA games)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  None!

MLB teams outdrawn by Single-A teams:  Oakland (outdrawn by 1 A game)

 

Time of game averaged at the three hour mark as usual recently, with every team playing a game below and above the mark.

 

Temps cooled off everywhere outside of Texas, where only a handful of teams played over 90 degrees.  Meanwhile, four teams played in temps below 70.  Winter is coming!

 

Now finally, as always, your miscellany.  And of course we have included the raw data at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
