MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Weeks of 8/26: Playoff Elimination Time

The Orioles were eliminated from the playoffs last week, and it certainly showed as they managed to only draw 8,153 fans to a game last week.

MLB 2019 Ejections, Attendance & Weather – Weeks of 8/19: Florida is Not a Baseball State
