MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Week of 9/30: Season Finale




The regular season has ended, and with it this year’s BTBS. Thanks for tuning in this year, and expect a slightly different format going forward. Anyway, the Rays clinched a playoff spot this wek while also having the lowest attended game of the week. They were also joined by five other teams in being outdrawn by AAA teams:

MLB teams outdrawn by AAA teams: Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Toronto, Chicago White Sox, and Cincinnati (2 games each)

Time of game continued to sit at the 3:15 mark as it has throughout September. The good news is that October and playoff baseball on national TV surely won’t help in keeping baseball games moving quickly this year.

Ejections finished at 202 on the season with the Senior Circuit taking the title. In the past 5 years, the AL has won three ejection crowns and the NL has won the last two in a row.

Temps stayed hot in Texas, with the last two games at Globe Life Park being 94 degrees, as fans salivate heavily over the domed stadium going up next door.

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