Father’s Day at the ballpark, coupled with interleague play had gates clicking at a rapid pace on Sunday across Major League Baseball. Over 15 games, paid attendance was 572,448 or an average of 38,163, an increase of 12 percent over the same set of Sunday games last season when gates pulled in 509,903 or an average of 33,994.

Six clubs drew over 40,000 (Rockies, Twins, Cubs, Mariners, Cardinals, and Dodgers). The Rockies led the league with 49,015.

In terms of filling the house, it was the second-best day of the year for the league behind only Opening Day. Ballparks were filled to 88 percent of capacity.

Those numbers were bolstered by sellouts – 7 in all – with four clubs (Twins, A’s, Red Sox, Cubs) going over 100 percent into standing-room-only.
