MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 6/3: Sub 10,000 Across Florida



The Marlins, Rays, and Orioles all drew below 10,000 for at least one game last week, and the Marlins drew fewer fans in three games than 13 of the other 21 teams drew in their single lowest attended game of the week. As one would expect, there were plenty of MLB games outdrawn by minor league teams this week:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Tampa (56 AAA games), Miami (47 AAA games), Baltimore (27 games), Seattle (5 games), Pittsburgh and Oakland (2 games each), Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati (1 game each)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  Tampa (21 AA games), Miami (16 games), Baltimore (1 game)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams:  Tampa (3 A-Adv, 11 A games), Miami (3 A-Adv, 9 A games), Baltimore (1 A-Adv, 2 A games)

The AL narrowed the ejection gap in a slow week, gaining a net of two ejections by having three of the week’s four ejections. This brings the gap between the two leagues to only four ejections.

Time of game continued to creep 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. Only Arizona didn’t play a game shorter than three hours last week.

In the weather department, the lowest temp of the week was 52 while the high was some open-roof games in Arizona at 97 degrees. Overall average hit 72 degrees. Beautiful week for baseball
