MLBGoing to the ballgame has always been a social affair, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that as the weather warms up, so does the gate.

Sunday saw half of the league’s ballparks filled to 75 percent or greater of capacity, and overall, attendance saw them all at 72 percent of capacity, up 4% from last Sunday.

The Brewers, now in the thick of the NL Central race, continued to be a darling on the attendance front posting yet another sellout in one of league’s smallest markets.

Here’s Sunday’s numbers and promotions:
