MLBIt's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

If there’s a song being hummed around MLB today, it’s possibly that pop song from the ‘80s by The Bangles.  Yesterday was one of the worst attended days of the season, with ballparks being filled to an average of just 53 percent, and five clubs seeing attendance under 40 percent.

And, it gets worse.

The Dodgers, who have been fighting attendance woes all season barely cracked 35,000 on a night when there were discounted tickets. The Nationals, had a dollar night promo that had just over 50 percent sell-thru (granted, the Nats were playing the Pirates). And finally, the A’s woes at the gate continued with attendance just cracking the 11,000 mark.

You get the sense that all around the league, execs are looking up at the calendar and praying for Memorial Day to arrive.

Here’s Monday’s breakdown. At least there were no rainouts on Monday

It’s taken a while, but the national media is starting to take notice that rainouts this year are skewing the early 2011 attendance total (well, rainouts and the Dodgers, if you want to be exact).

Sunday saw not one. Not two. But, three rainouts, pushing the season total to 25. To place that in perspective, at the same point last season there was just 8, and the record number for this point over the last decade was 28 in 2007.

Along the way on Sunday, we had the MLB Civil Rights Game, seeing Halladay v Hudson, the Red Sox sweep the Yankees in Yankee Stadium for the first time since 2004 on the ESPN Sunday Night Game, and even though the Twins are mired in an incredible slump, season ticket sales continue to keep paid attendance for the Twins at near sellout levels.

Here is the rest of Sunday’s totals:

MLB Attendance Tracker for Sat. 5/14: Standings Shmandings: Twins, Brewers Pack the House PDF Print E-mail

Look at the Brewers and Twins attendance numbers below for Sat. If you didn’t follow the standings, you’d say, “Both must be in first place, right?” Well….

For the Brewers, the club has done a fantastic sales job (not just this year, but for several, now). They sit in third behind the Reds and Cardinals, but at 19-21, the attendance numbers are fantastic. Why? Note the promotion.

For the Twins, it shows how performing well in the last two seasons, and the honeymoon effect in Target Field are paying dividends in what can only be described as an anemic start with the AL worst record (12-26, .316).

For the A’s… Well, the Athletics are just flat out bad at the gate.

The optimist says this about Saturday’s numbers: half the games played had ballparks filled to over 90% if capacity.

MLB Attendance Tracker for Fri. 5/13: Power of the Weekend, A's, Nats, Rays Drag Rest Down PDF Print E-mail
Ticket & Attendance Watch
Written by Maury Brown and David Simmons   
Saturday, 14 May 2011 12:30

MLBIf you’re looking to get into the niche world of attendance/ticket watching in Major League Baseball, our newly added daily tracker brings to light nuances that get lost when simply matching up overall numbers over the course of a season.

Today’s data shows how much weekends factor. Where Thursday’s numbers showed several ballparks just above 50% of capacity, on Friday, most were filled to 70% of capacity, with three clubs (Rays, Nationals, and especially, A’s) dragging the rest down.

Four clubs (Twins, Rangers, Yankees, and Cubs) saw their ballparks filled to over 90% of capacity. In Detroit, 33,641 (82% of Comerica’s capacity) saw Justin Verlander toss a gem on his first game after his no-hitter.

Oh, and thankfully, there were no rainouts on Friday.

MLB Attendance Tracker for Thurs. 5/12: Another Rainout, SF Giants Pack It In PDF Print E-mail

MLBAnother day, another rainout. For the second day in a row, and 22 since the season started on March 31, a game was postponed due to weather. The impact may not ultimately be the key driver in an attendance decline, but consider this: many, if not most, of the games are made up later in the season as part of double-headers. With teams running on fumes at that stage, adding in the extra games will tax rotations.

Enough of the rain news, here’s what is good to see. The Giants, hosting a late afternoon start had another game nearly at capacity. Now, if only Cleveland, baseball’s best story, could get fans back out to the ballpark after all those incredible early years at the Jake.

Here’s the breakout for Thurs, May 12.

“Rain. Rain. Go Away.”

If there’s a song dancing in Bud Selig’s head today, it’s surely that children's nursery rhyme. Wednesday saw two more rainouts in Major League Baseball, bringing the total up to 21 for the 2011 season, which is just shy of a month-and-a-half old. And that didn’t include the rain delay for the Cards-Cubs game that gave a national television audience on ESPN something to chat about as winds and lightening came with the deluge.

Just  17,741 saw the Rays break the Indians home game winning streak at 14, and not even the brand power of the Red Sox seems to bring them in at Rogers Centre.

Still, there were some bright spots Weds. The Brewers continue to draw well, and even though playing well below what was expected this year, the Twins are packing it out. And, finally, nothing helps bring fans in like a promo. Just ask the Angels who were playing the lackluster White Sox.

When it comes to reporting on attendance in Major League Baseball, often times, the story of the "why" ticket sales are up and down are often not fully told. In reality, it's the nature of the beast. Everything from who were the starters, to whether there was a promotion, to the weather, and much more, factor.

To try and get a clearer picture, David Simmons has begun a daily tracker that gives a snapshot of the games played the day before. Therefore, the data below is for Tuesday's games.

Note that "Sell-Thru" is the same as percentage of capacity for a given ballpark.

Yankees Ticket Info Leak Exposes Personal Information, Ticket Revenues PDF Print E-mail

Written by Maury Brown

YankeesIn a gaffe that exposed not only personal information of non-season ticket holders but ticket revenues and counts, a ticket representative from the New York Yankees accidently attached a spreadsheet with sensitive information along with a newsletter to approx. 1,500 fellow ticket holders. While no credit card or other financial information about customers were revealed, other personal information, was.

The Yankees sent a letter to the season ticket licensees, reading:

Dear Yankees Season Ticket Licensee,

We are writing to inform you about an accidental electronic distribution of information that you have previously supplied to the New York Yankees.

Monday evening, April 25, 2011, an employee of the Yankees sent an e-mail to several hundred Yankees Season Ticket Licensees. The e-mail mistakenly attached an internal Yankees spreadsheet that listed the following information associated with your New York Yankees account:

• Your name, and the address, phone number(s), fax number, and e-mail address that you previously provided to the Yankees

• Your seat numbers, Yankees account number, Yankees account representative name, and the ticket package code associated with your account

NO OTHER INFORMATION WAS INCLUDED IN THE DOCUMENT THAT WAS ACCIDENTALLY ATTACHED TO THE APRIL 25TH E-MAIL. THE DOCUMENT DID NOT INCLUDE ANY BIRTH DATES, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS, CREDIT CARD DATA, BANKING DATA, OR ANY OTHER PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION.

Please note, immediately upon learning of the accidental attachment of the internal spreadsheet, remedial measures were undertaken so as to assure that a similar incident could not happen again.

The Yankees deeply regret this incident, and any inconvenience that it might cause.

That alone would be an embarrassing, but within the spreadsheet was other info that sheds light on the state of ticket sales within the Yankees organization.

  • The Yankees' total non-premium ticket licensee ticket revenue for far in 2011 is approximately $131,978,910 (plus or minus 1% accuracy due to possible discounting)
  • There are 17,686 non-premium subscriber accounts
  • There are 26,904 full season equivalents
  • There are 21,468 ticket plans
  • There are 59,498 ticket plan seats
  • 2,179,237 total subscriber tickets sold

Doing a bit of fun math… Non-premium ticket revenue accounts for 65 percent of the $202,689,028 Opening Day salary figure released by USA Today. In other words, if you throw in premium ticket sales, and other revenue streams such as sponsorships, YES, and centralized streams such as national broadcast rights fees and MLB Advanced Media, it’s fairly safe that the Yankees will have (yet another) lucrative season.

As for the ticket rep that inadvertently mailed off the spreadsheet, he tried desperately to recall the email through Microsoft Outlook, but those that weren’t using Outlook got the email anyway. No word on whether the rep was “DFAd” today due to the mistake.

April Showers: MLB Seeing High Number of Rainouts PDF Print E-mail

Rainouts

They say April showers bring May flowers, but Major League Baseball could use more sunshine.

The league is taking an attendance hit, and teams will be playing more double-headers due to the high number if rainouts. As of yesterday, the league has seen 12 rainouts. To place this in perspective, there were just the two rainouts for all of April last season. By the 19th of April of 2010 there were no rainouts.

There have been 3 days where more than one game has been rained out (April 12, 16, and 19) with the 12th seeing three games postponed due to poor weather.

The AL East has been hit the worst with all open-air stadiums seeing at least one postponement. The Yankees have the dubious distinction of being the only club this year to see more than one rainout.

And remember, this doesn’t account for rain delays. MLB is sure to point to some of this as a key reason for the attendance drop early in the 2011 season.

See the table below for each game rained out so far in the 2011 season.
