Attendance 2019

Recommended Posts

About 8,100 last night. Tampa broke their low attendance record yesterday,5,786. Orioles now 28th in the league in average attendance. Only the Floridians are lower. 10 teams averaging less then 20,000 a game. Jays are down over 9,000 a game. But profits from regional and national and online are at record highs. Only three teams were below 20,000 last year. Some teams might pick up a little. But many teams are not good and players that are not draws to see.

Florida is a bad place to put a team, much less two.

Even when they was winning, they were still slacking in attendance.

Nineteen of the 30 teams have seen their average fall from a similar point last year, with the largest drops in Toronto (6,963), San Francisco (6,463), Baltimore (3,839) and Detroit (3,686).

Large rises have taken place for Philadelphia (10,383), Oakland (4,027), San Diego (3,465) and the Chicago White Sox (2,311). The Phillies signed Bryce Harper and the Padres added Manny Machado.

MLB’s average peaked at 32,785 in 2007 — the last year before the Great Recession and the next-to-last season before the New York Yankees and Mets moved to smaller stadiums. The average was at 30,517 in 2015 before sliding for three straight years, and last season’s final figure of 28,830 marked a 4% drop, the overall number hurt by unusually cold and wet weather early in the season.

Quote

Despite a sparkling, eight-season-old ballpark with a retractable roof, Miami is averaging 9,554 in Derek Jeter’s second season as chief executive — below the 9,582 average for Triple-A Las Vegas in its first season at a new 10,000-capacity stadium.

Tampa Bay plays in one of the most outmoded facilities in the major leagues and drew 5,786 against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, the smallest home crowd for the Rays, who started play at Tropicana Field in 1998.

Quote

Having traded many veterans, the Orioles are 28th in the majors at 16,263. Baltimore topped 2 million in 21 of its first 25 seasons at Camden Yards, exceeding 3 million nine times. But the Orioles drew 6,585 against Oakland on April 8, the lowest in the ballpark’s 28-season history except for a 2015 game closed to the public at a time when the city was plagued by rioting.

“I wish fans were here. When we played in Wrigley, the energy level was off the charts,” first-year Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said. “I’m hoping that someday soon that will be the case here.”

Hmm.....we are now on a pace for 49 wins...2 better than last year.  Attendance will reflect this. .

The record is identical with this point last year. At home, the Orioles are 1-8-1 in 10 series, for an 8-23 mark.   In short, if you go to a home game, you have a 2 out of 3 chance of watching a loss, same as 2018.

I read today that the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has cancelled its summer concert series.  As an outsider looking in, it seems all I ever read about the city recently is negative.  I love the Orioles, but it seems the city has developed a major image problem.

The symphony's problem is their audience is dying out.  They are playing the conductor a million dollars a year.  I have been to the symphony a lot.  Most of their patrons are 70+.  Peter Angelos was a big supporter.   Nice facility but the audience just doesn't exist anymore for classical music.

Probably some similarities to baseball.  Older audience, difficult to attract younger people especially with fracturing of the media environment.  I'm guessing a lot of people think it's great baseball and the symphony exist, but wouldn't actually go and spend money unless there was a really good reason.

So you're saying the BSO needs to find a good streaming platform to broadcast their product to keep up with the modern era?    ;)

Maybe.  I think they're probably tanking the season so they can get that bassoon player from Colorado State at 1:1.  But everyone knows you don't win championships with bassoon players.  Trumpets are where it's at, which they'd know if they'd embraced analytics.

The O’s drew 172,327 fans in home games 21-30, compared to 222,861 last year.    Through 30 home games:

2016: 707,151 (32.5% of full season)

2017: 842,541 (41.5% of full year attendance)

2018: 594,416 (38.0% of full year attendance)

2019: 470,343

If current attendance is 32.5% of total, that projects to 1.447 mm.   At 38.0% it projects to 1.238 mm.   At 41.5% it projects to 1.134 mm.   I think the middle figure is probably the best bet.

Be interesting to see what they draw against the almost as bad Blow Jays.Two promotions during the week but not sure what boost it will be.Red Sox series should boost attendance a lityle.Red Sox not exactly playing that great again. Offense is sluggish with Martinez out.Three promotions this weekend.That fedora hat is amazing.😀.If they dont get around 80,000 or more this weekend, might be a real low attendance year.

    • Lol. Because we have to room to make our 2 rule 5 selections. 
    • I’m torn on Mckenna. I see your points about Fry and Armstrong. I think we have some relievers that would be “good” if they were on a team that could use them in traditional ways. Like Fry, Scott, Armstrong, Castro, and even Bleier, but we’re not a traditional team. We’re a team struggling to cover innings.  That’s why I Was surprised we let Ynoa and Brooks both go. I could see one but not both. Those were two guys you could stick in any game and say you just gotta eat innings.  Having one inning relievers on this team is pretty pointless, outside of Givens.  Will we be able to do the Norfolk shuttle now, since there really aren’t those guys on the roster now to shuttle up and down?  They’re now prospects that we’d like to leave in their SP regimen. 
    • Why would anyone need to be DFAd in that scenario with five open roster spaces?
    • The O's really needs to add  near term starters.  And to sign them Elias may have to offer a 40 man roster spots.  I see Armstrong and Fry vulnerable to being left go in order to sign some guys that offer more innings. Wojo types.   Kyle Moore says Fenter has three plus pitches.  As bad as the O's need starters I can't see  them exposing a guy like that to the draft.  Even if he ends of being a multi inning reliever if he has three plus pitches he is too good to expose IMO. If the O's had the room I would protect McKenna but when I try to fit him on the 40 man with the need for starters, long relievers and adding Mountcastle I run out of room.  
    • Thanks for the great analysis @Tony-OH @Luke-OH.   Do you guys think Mullins has been officially asked to give up switch hitting?  
    • 26 man roster thought... A six man rotation would benefit everyone. I know, I know... we can barely find 5 SP(really 3), but it could allow us to start Harvey in 3IP stints, and go from there.  Means - would his fb play up, or could it hurt the feel for his secondaries? Bundy - always benefits from the extra rest  Cobb - has been hurt the last two years, so... Wojo - his stuff could play up Akin - a good way to break him into the MLB.  Wasn’t going deep into AAA starts. Harvey - we get to see if he can start with extra rest and a controlled environment. Also this would be a good way to introduce future pitching prospects as either spot starters or for long relief one game. Or why couldn’t we just piggyback guys like they do in the minors to start the year. What is the downside?  We lose 110 instead of 105?
    • Just reminds of how strange a year 2012 was. Roberts was a non-contributor to that team. I can’t say I be same about Markakis, he just caught a tough break from CC. The first time we make the playoffs after all those years and those two weren’t factors in the playoffs.
