MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Weeks of 7/29 and 8/5: Hot Temp(er)s




Editor note: Again I was unable to update last week so this week combines the past two. Forgive me.

Ejections are the major story this week on the back of the major brawl between the Pirates and the Reds last week, which accounted for nine of the last two weeks’ 25 ejections that took place. It certainly helped expand the NL’s lead over the AL to 23 more ejections for the Senior Circuit.

The Marlins managed to get outdrawn by 147 minor league games over the past two weeks after only managing 7,048 fans to their game against Arizona. Only four other teams were outdrawn by AAA games across the league:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Miami (110 AAA games), Baltimore (42 AAA games), Tampa Bay (13 AAA games), Oakland (8 AAA games), Pittsburgh (3 AAA games)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  Miami (15 AA games), Baltimore (1 AA game)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams:  Miami (22 A games)

Time of game once again sat over 3:10 as pitching changes and extra inning games seemed quite frequent over the past two weeks, yet everyone played a game shorter than three hours.

As one would expect, temperatures have been brutal everywhere but indoors and the Bay Area, with Miami and Oakland being the only teams that didn’t play a game at or above 87 degrees last week, including Texas hosting in a lovely 98 degree evening. Globe Life Field can’t come fast enough in the Metroplex.

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