Ticket & Attendance Watch
Written by Maury Brown

With the high number of rainouts, plus morbid attendance for the Dodgers and Mets, you’d assume that MLB was seeing a decline compared to last season, and that would be correct.

But, reports of doom and gloom would be highly exaggerated

Last year at this time there was a total of 23,077,660 over 808 games, or an average of 28,561 in paid attendance. Compare that to this season where over 835 games, MLB has drawn 23,582,541 or an average of 28,243 per game, or down 1 percent from the year prior.

Look for The Biz of Baseball to publish individual game attendance numbers for 2010 and 2011 shortly.
