Interleague 2009

UPDATE: Stats for each team (W-L, BA, HR, R, ERA) as well as stats for individual leaders in each of those categories has now been added as a PDF after the break by selecting "Read More"


With Sunday’s games in the books, Interleague Play for MLB in 2009 is nearly concluded (a June 16th rainout between the Cubs and White Sox still needs to be replayed), seeing average attendance drop from last year’s record setting pace.

The National League/American League match-ups drew an average of 33,351, down 6.66 percent from the 2008 record average of 35,573. Average attendance for the season was also down from 2007’s Interleague average attendance mark of 34,905, or down 4.66 percent. 2009 will mark the first time in three consecutive seasons that record attendance was not reached for Interleague Play.

The 2009 Interleague average is 16.1 percent higher than this season’s current intraleague average of 28,727 per game.

Since its inception in 1997, Interleague Play has drawn 12.0 percent more fans than intraleague games; Interleague Play has averaged 33,260 fans per game, compared to the intraleague average of 29,706 fans per game during the same span.

Breaking down the first series of Interleague games (May 22-24), the average attendance dropped 9.3 percent, or an average of 33,531 compared to 2008’s 36,968. The second set of attendance games – the far longer stretch that ran from June 12-28 –  saw a lower decline of 4.45 percent, or an average attendance of 33,434 compared to 34,993 for the same set of games last season.

Overall nine clubs saw average attendance for Interleague increase (Marlins, Twins, Royals, Dodgers, Braves, Brewers, Phillies, Red Sox, and Mariners), with the Marlins, Twins, Royals, and Dodgers seeing an increase in the double-digits.

The big winner this year is not the Marlins, or Royals, but rather the Dodgers who see an an average increase of over 10 percent while seeing the top six highest attended games during Interleague

Decliners out pace the increases with 21 clubs posting Interleague attendance declines with ten seeing double-digit losses (White Sox, Tigers, Yankees, Reds, Astros, Blue Jays, Indians, Mets, Padres, and Diamondbacks)

A key aspect of the overall decline this season centers around new ballparks for the Yankees and the Mets, both of which see smaller seating capacities.

The Mets, who went from cavernous Shea Stadium (seating capacity 57,333) to the more petite Citi Field (seating capacity 41,800), saw avg. attendance for Interleague decline a sharp 34.37 percent, the third highest drop in Interleague attendance for 2009. There were no sellouts, with just three of the nine games played in the new stadium seeing attendance above 41,000. The lowest attended tilt during Interleague for the Mets was 37,992 (Sat. June 20 against the Rays), and a high of 41,302 (Sat. June 27 against the Yankees).

As for the Yankees, they see a decline of 13.64 percent from an average of 54,060 in the final year of the House That Ruth Built to an average of 46,689 in new Yankee Stadium. By comparison, all Interleague games last year in Yankee Stadium saw average attendance above 52,000 while this year in the new stadium sees avg. attendance for the AL/NL games with a low of 44,873 (Tues. June 16 against the Nationals) to a high of 48,056 (Sat. June 13 against the Mets). All told the Yankees see seven of the top 20 highest attended Interleague games, but only one in the top 10 (that Sat. game against the Mets) which sits at No. 10 out of all Interleague games played this season.

While the Mets see the biggest decline in Interleague attendance compared to last season, they are not the worst. That dubious distinction belongs to the Arizona Diamondbacks who saw a decline of over 55 percent (-55.55%) from an average of 36,382 in 2008 to 23,389 in 2009. Rounding out other major declines are the Padres (down 39.03 percent from 31,919 in ’08 to 22,959 this season), the aforementioned Mets, Indians (down 28.69 percent from 32,585  in ’08 to 25,321 this season), and Blue Jays (down 27.75 percent from 29,402  in ’08 to 23,016 this season).

In terms of lowest attended, the Marlins see the four lowest ranked games (12,839, 12,822, 12,469, and 10,222). Rounding out the bottom ten worst attended games in Interleague are the Athletics (13,792, 13,586), Royals (14,129), Indians (15,269), and Blue Jays (15,409, 15,329).
