MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Weeks of 8/12: Cooler Heads and Cooler Temps




A bit of a ho-hum week in Major League Baseball after 25 ejections the previous two weeks, only four last week, with mild numbers across all other metris.

The Marlins managed to get outdrawn by 52 minor league games over the past two weeks after only managing 8,057 fans to their game against Atlanta. Only two other teams were outdrawn by AAA games across the league:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams:  Miami (43 AAA games), Tampa Bay (28 AAA games), Pittsburgh (9 AAA games)

MLB teams outdrawn by AA teams:  Miami (5 AA games)

MLB teams outdrawn by A teams:  Miami (1 A-Adv, 3 A games)

Time of game once again sat down around 3:07 on the back of almost every team playing a game below three hours, and about half playing a game below 2:30 (!).

Temps managed to cool off, averaging only in the high 70s, with zero games in the 90s last week. The Bay Area and Seattle maintained their chill, with temps in the low to mid 60s.

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