MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 5/26: Ideal Weather Nationwide




The Marlins being out of town and a holiday weekend helped buoy attendance this week, with only one team, the Pirates, drawing under 10,000, which happened to also be the only team to be outdrawn by minor league teams this week:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Pittsburgh (16 AAA games)

The NL continued to widen the gap in ejections with the help of the Brewers, who had three players ejected by Mike Estabrook on Saturday and Sunday. The NL now has a six ejection lead over the AL.

Time of game crept up to 3:10 as we start to get into the dog days of summer leading to more pitching changes and an overall slower pace. On the bright side, only the Cubs and Dodgers didn’t play a game shorter than three hours this week.

In the weather department, the lowest temp of the week was 50 while the highest was 90. This may have been the best week you’ll ever see for watching baseball. The only downside would’ve been the 25 MPH winds found in Atlanta on Tuesday night.

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