MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 5/12: Ejection Catchup




The big surprise of the week is that only two teams across MLB were outdrawn by minor league teams, the Rays and the A’s, for a total of 35 games:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Tampa Bay (19 AAA games), Oakland (9 games)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams: Tampa Bay (2 games)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams: Tampa Bay (5 games)

The American League caught back up with the NL in the ejections race, as both now sit at 23, with plenty of season left to go.

Time of game fell down to just over three hours, with no team averaging between 3:03 and 3:10 last week. Only the Rockies and Brewers didn’t play a game shorter than three hours on the full week.

In the weather department, some sub-40 degree temperatures returned as the Rockies and Giants played in the snow. Overall temps averaged in the mid-60s. Perfect baseball weather!

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