MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 4/21: Double Your Ejections!



Tempers have gotten hot only three weeks into the season as FIFTEEN ejections doubled the season total of ejections in just a week. This was in part due to the White Sox – Royals brawl which brought in four ejections. Beyond that, plenty of other items of note this week. Let’s take a look.

The Marlins reclaimed their throne as the bottom of the attendance barrel, getting outdrawn by A, AA, and AAA teams this week:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Miami (30 AAA games), Tampa Bay (14) Baltimore, Seattle, Oakland, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Chicago White Sox, Detroit (7), Texas (1).

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams: Miami (3 games).

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams: Miami (1 A game).

The ejection lead that the NL had built up got destroyed in a week as the NL now only has a one ejection advantage over the AL.

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

In the weather department, the early season chill is in full effect, with nine teams playing games below 50 degrees last week. However, mild temps prevailed with an average temperature in the mid-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!
