MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 6/17: Most Ejections in a Week – EVER



The story of the week is ejections, SEVENTEEN, which is the most that we have seen in a week since 2015, when AMSTS began tracking ejections. Almost evenly split between the two leagues, meaning the gap between the AL and NL remains at only two ejections.

On the attendance front, the Marlins were at home last week, and averaged fewer than 8,000 fans across all five games. The good news was that the Marlins drew over 10,000 for one game this week, their 10th game of the season above that mark, on 38 home games thus far.

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Miami (49 AAA games), Tampa Bay and Baltimore (7 AAA games each)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  Miami (21 AA games)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams:  Miami (13 A, 2 Short A games)

Time of game continued to spiked back to 3:10 on the back of quite a few extra inning games that inched up the average across the board. Four teams managed to not play a game shorter than three hours, including the Braves who didn’t go below the 3:15 mark this week.

In the weather department, we’re in full San Francisco summer, as the Giants tied for the warmest temperature of the week at 85 degrees, and the lowest with 58 degrees. What a climate.

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