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.

Here are Sunday’s numbers and promotions:

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.

MLB Attendance Tracker for Fri 6/17: MLB Hits it Out of the Park on First Day of Second Interleague PDF Print E-mail

Written by Maury Brown and David Simmons

On the first day of the second series of interleague games, Major League Baseball hit it out of the park, averaging 34,881 per game while seeing ballparks filled to 80% of capacity. The average per game across the league was a 6 percent increase from the same Friday of interleague last year when ballparks pulled in an average of 32,905.

On the sellout front, it shouldn't be surprising that the Cubs sold out Wrigley Field with the Yankees in town, but the biggest benefactor was the Athletics who had the cross Bay rivals in the World Champion San Francisco Giants at Overstock.com Stadium. It was just the third sellout of the season for the A's. The other two? Opening Day, and May 30th when they hosted the Yankees.

Still, how does it stack up to intraleague play? Friday in the majors ranked as the third best day by percentage of ballparks filled behind only Opening Day and last Saturday.

The real key will be how interleague fares when it moves off the weekend and into the weekdays. For that, look to reports each day throughout the coming week.

Here is a breakdown of the numbers, along with the promotions, many of which were fireworks displays.

PhilliesThe Phillies have it going. Eventually they may have their player payroll collapse in on them, but for now, they are hitting on all cylinders.

Case in point, Weds’ games. The Phillies had a double-header that saw Citizens Bank Park filled to standing-room only for both games. That helped bolster the overall league attendance numbers, pushing ballparks to 66 percent of capacity, compared to 62 percent last week, and 55 percent two weeks ago on Weds.

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.

MLB Attendance Tracker for Fri 6/10: Weather and Fireworks Makes for Highest Attended Fri in 3 Weeks PDF Print E-mail

Ah… Summer time. While some schools are still in session. It feels like summer. Throw in some traditional Friday night fireworks displays at the ballpark, and what do you know? Attendance goes up.

Ballparks averaged 72% of capacity on Fri the 10th, the best sell-through of the past 3 Fridays.

Remember all that doom-and-gloom about overall attendance? While Selig’s prediction of a 7% increase seems a difficult number to hit, a steep decline isn’t in the offing. To date, 26,846,739 have paid to see games in MLB across 950 counted gates in boxscores (rainouts accounted for, and some double-header data is not released), or an average of 28,260 per game. Compare that to last season at this date on the calendar when 25,795,872 paid over 905 games for an average of 28,504 and MLB is seeing attendance down less than 1 percent (-0.9%) compared to last season.

MLB Attendance Tracker for Mon 6/6: I Don’t Like Mondays, the Marlins, Royals, and Orioles Version PDF Print E-mail
Ticket & Attendance Watch
Written by Maury Brown and David Simmons

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.

MLBSaturday in the Majors was an attendance love-fest. Six sellouts, plus the highest attended game in PNC Park history.

Too bad it didn’t last.

Ballparks across the majors will filled to 68 percent of capacity, compared to 74 percent the Sunday prior.

There were 3 sellouts, but two were expected (Giants have sold out every home game this season, and Red Sox) with the Angels being the lone sellout that was good news for the club (two days in a row).

Five clubs were filled to 50 percent or lower. The Marlins have the dubious distinction (again) of having the lowest attended game of the day (13,208) or just 36 percent of capacity. Guess fans just aren’t interested in kissing Joe Robbie/Land Shark Lager/Sun Life Stadium off in its baseball swan song year.

UPDATE: A correction has been made to the capacity size for the Rangers, and with it, overall numbers have changed. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Ballparks were filled to 62 percent of capacity on Tues, which sounds bad until you realize last Tues they were just filled to 51 percent.

While there were three sellouts (Phillies, Giants, Yankees), the Orioles, Pirates, Marlins, and Indians took what would have been a fairly solid day and knocked it down.  Those four clubs drew well under 40 percent of capacity on Tues. The Orioles (last in the AL East) hosting the A’s (last in the AL West) was flirting with numbers that could have put them below 30 percent of capacity (as it was, Camden Yards was filled to exactly 30% of capacity).

Here’s Tuesdays numbers and promotions:
