MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 6/24: Highest Midseason Attendance Week of the Year



Last week saw some of the highest attendance numbers of the year, accounting not only on the fact that Miami and Tampa Bay were on the road, but even Oakland had decent attendance. The low water mark was the A’s vs the O’s with a completely-not-made-up 12,345 in attendance.

The good news in all this is that only six games drew less than the highest attended AAA games of the week. Oakland and Seattle, both hosting the Orioles this week, struggled in getting fans in the doors, while the third was out east:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Oakland (3 AAA games), Seattle (2 games) and Toronto (1 game)

Time of game continued to stayed close to 3:10 on the back of quite a few extra inning games that inched up the average across the board. Only the Braves, however, didn’t play a game shorter than three hours last week.

In the weather department, they left the roof open in Phoenix this week, as we got new season highs at 103 degrees twice, and 102 in another instance. Meanwhile it was 54 degrees in Chicago. No wonder half of Arizona has an 847 area code.

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