MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 4/14: Chilly Weather

We’re into baseball season in April, and with it come the rain delays and cancellations. Both Minnesota and Texas only played four games this week, on account of a scheduled day off and some rainouts. Meanwhile, in Baltimore, some trouble getting butts in seats, as the Orioles had the lowest attended games in Oriole Park at Camden Yards history1. Let’s take a look.

With plenty of Minor League teams past their Opening Day stage, not a lot of high attendance in the minors, but the Orioles managed to outdo the Marlins, which is rare:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Baltimore (32 AAA games), Miami (16) Cincinnati (10, Kansas City and Chicago White Sox (9), Detroit (6).

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams: Baltimore (8 games).

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams: Baltimore (4 A games).

The NL continued expanding their ejections lead, getting four players and managers rung compared to the AL’s two ejections.

Time of game stayed at about 3:05, similar to last week. Everyone but the Twins and Mets played shorter and longer then three hours this week.

In the weather department, the early season chill is in full effect, with four teams playing games below 40 degrees last week. However, mild temps prevailed with an average temperature in the 60s on the full week.

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