The second day (Sat) of the second interleague set of the 2011 Major League Baseball saw an increase over the same games last year, drawing an average of 36,696 over 15 games compared to an average of 35,990 on the same Saturday in 2010.

The largest draw was in Colorado where the Rockies hosted the Tigers in front of 48,555 – a sellout – or 96% of Coors Field’s 50,449 capacity.

And, Coors Field wasn’t the only sellout. All told there were five sellouts (A’s, Cubs, Red Sox, Twins, Cardinals, and the Rockies).

Ballparks were filled to 84 percent of capacity, or the third highest total of filling ballparks all season behind only Opening Day and May 21, the second day of the first series of interleague games in MLB for 2011.

Here’s Saturday’s interleague totals along with promotions:
