MLB Attendance

It takes some real doing to have attendance drop as far as the Miami Marlins have, but they’re setting records this season, albeit all the kinds you don’t want to own.

On Friday, the club slipped from 29th to last in MLB attendance, a staggering achievement as they are not even a season and a half into a brand new ballpark. With 15,403 in attendance on Friday against the Cardinals, and the Indians pulling in 30,824 against the Nationals in an interleague tilt on the same night as a $1 hot dog and fireworks promotion was held, the Marlins dropped from an average of 17,399 to 17,341 while the Indians climbed to 17,521.

It isn’t likely to stop dropping. In fact, it's well on pace to being a historic attendance plunge.

Between the fire sale to the Blue Jays and the abysmal performance on the field that will likely have them, not the Astros, end with the worst record in baseball, attendance will continue to slide. In the meantime, all those clubs that have suffered through the cold, wet spring with open-air ballparks will begin to see increases as people flock to enjoy the sun during the summer.

Below shows the tale of the tape along with the supporting data through Sunday, June 16. Oh, and for those Indians fans and those looking at both Florida clubs’ attendance, as of Sunday, the Indians had also passed the Rays, meaning that Florida now has the dubious distinction of having the two worst attended clubs in all of MLB.
