MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Weeks of 7/1 and 7/8: All Star Break!



Editor note: Apologies for the lack of post last week, but AMSTS went on vacation. This week’s edition will cover the two week period ending on Sunday July 7th.

With everyone having hosted a home game in the last two weeks, the full board was up to play, and Miami did not disappoint, drawing 6,276 to a game, a number outdrawn by 229 minor league games in the past 14 days, the rest:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Miami (141 AAA games), Tampa Bay (20 games), Baltimore (8 games), Oakland (6 games), Pittsburgh (3 games), Cleveland and Cincinnati (1 game each)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  Miami (48 AA games), Tampa Bay (1 game)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams:  Miami (6 A-Adv, 23 A, 7 Short A games), Tampa Bay, Baltimore, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toronto (1 game each)

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 Red Sox, however, didn’t play a game shorter than three hours in the last two weeks.

In the weather department, they left the roof open again in Phoenix this week, as we once again tied the season highs at 103 degrees twice. Meanwhile it was 57 degrees in Seattle

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