MLBMonday didn’t treat MLB’s attendance numbers well. If you needed prood of that, five of 11 clubs drew 40 percent or below capacity to really skew numbers.

The Padres (40%), Indians (35%), Marlins (34%), Royals (32%), and Orioles (23%) pulled the league average attendance on Monday to just 24,259. The Orioles really put a crimp in paid attendance drawing just 10,556.

And, it didn’t help that there 4 clubs that had no promotions of any kind, let alone giveaways.

All told, the league saw ballparks filled to 58% of capacity. Compare that to 64% last Monday and 67% on 5/30.

Thank goodness for the Phillies, and Giants, both of whom continued the torrid sellout streak on the season.

Here’s Monday’s attendance numbers, along with promotions:
