Ticket & Attendance Watch
Written by Maury Brown and David Simmons

When it comes to reporting on attendance in Major League Baseball, often times, the story of the "why" ticket sales are up and down are often not fully told. In reality, it's the nature of the beast. Everything from who were the starters, to whether there was a promotion, to the weather, and much more, factor.

To try and get a clearer picture, David Simmons has begun a daily tracker that gives a snapshot of the games played the day before. Therefore, the data below is for Tuesday's games.

Note that "Sell-Thru" is the same as percentage of capacity for a given ballpark.
