MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 9/23: Penultimate!

The season is drawing down and as teams are eliminated from playoff contention (Sorry Boston!), attendance slowly sinks away. As the Orioles complete a terrible 2019, it’s no surprise they ended up with the lowest attendance of the week, while also being outdrawn by the AAA playoffs:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams: Baltimore (4 games), Pittsburgh, Miami, Detroit, and Oakland (3 games each), Cleveland and Arizona (1 game each)

Time of game once sat near the 3:15 mark, continuing its season long climb, as 40 man rosters allow plenty more pitching changes. The Red Sox, who were eliminated this week, averaged over the FOUR HOUR mark. Yikes

Ejections calmed down as cooler temps must’ve meant cooler heads. Only five were ejected last week, three in the AL and two in the NL.

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