2010 Second Interleague AttendanceWith Sunday’s games in the books, Interleague play for 2010 was completed seeing  8,379,834 in paid attendance during AL/NL regular season games, down under 1 percent from last season’s total of 8,411,743. The average attendance for 2010 Interleague was 33,253 per game.

Interleague play, which is broken into two sets of play, one that sees a first set of weekend games toward the end of May and a larger second set of games, this year played between 6/11-6/27. Intermixed between these AL/NL match-ups were 15 National League only games.

The second Interleague games saw an average of 32,979, down 1.36 percent from the average of 33,434 and down 5.75 percent from the 34,993 for second interleague in 2008.

each game of second interleague 2010,

perod (Google Doc)

Leading the way was the Los Angeles Dodgers who as an average attendance in second interleague of 54,332, or 97 percent of Dodger Stadium’s capacity. The Dodgers benefited not only from having their regional match-ups with the Angels, but also from the New York Yankees coming to town, the first time since 2004 that the two had met in regular season play. The three games with the Yankees all had attendance of 56,000, a sellout and 100 percent of Dodger Stadium’s capacity. The Dodgers were followed by the Yankees (avg. attendance of 47,684 or 91 percent of capacity). In a sign that the Yankees are still baseball’s best draw, the Arizona Diamondbacks, who only had one Interleague series in the second set of AL/NL match-up games, drew an average of 46,443 for the 3 game set with the Bronx Bombers, or 95 percent of Chase Field’s capacity.

In terms of being able to full the ballpark to capacity, the Phillies saw Citizens Bank Park filled to overflowing. The club averaged 45,001 for second Interleague, or 103 percent of capacity. The Phillies were followed by the Twins and the honeymoon effect of the new Target Field as the other club to draw in more than 100 percent of capacity, filling standing-room only space (101 percent). The Twins were followed by Dodgers (97 percent), D-backs (95 percent), Cubs (94 percent), Giants (93 percent), and Red Sox (92 percent). All told, 9 clubs saw their ballparks filled to 90 percent of capacity or better.

On the flip side, the A’s saw the lowest attended set of second Interleague games drawing an average of 15,918 over 6 games. In defense of the A’s, the fact that the two series they hosted were the Pirates and Reds, both non-marquee teams. The A’s were followed by the Marlins (avg. of 16,959 over 6 games against the Rangers and Rays), Indians (avg. of 19,311 over 6 games between the Nationals and Mets), and Rays (avg. of 21,709 over 9 games between the Marlins, Padres, and D-backs). The Indians could have had it much worse as they lucked out with Stephen Strasburg making his second start at Progressive Field. That game drew 32,876 or 72.7 percent of capacity.

Still, in terms of being able to fill the house (or rather, not fill the house), the Strasburg start couldn’t save the Indians. The 19,311 average for second interleague for The Tribe was just 44 percent of Progressive Field’s capacity. The Indians were followed by the A’s (45 percent of capacity), Marlins (47 percent of capacity), and Blue Jays (53 percent of capacity). Ten clubs (Indians, A’s, Marlins, Blue Jays, Padres, Orioles, Rays, Rangers, Pirates, and Braves) saw ballparks filled to under 70 percent for the second set of Interleague games.

While the figures are skewed due to early season attendance when weather, and kids not being out of school can effect matters, the 2010 Interleague average is 17.8 percent higher than this season’s current intraleague average of 28,233 per game. Since its inception in 1997, Interleague Play has drawn 12.0 percent more fans than intraleague games; Interleague Play has averaged 33,261 fans per game, compared to the intraleague average of 29,711 fans per game during the same span.

Tickets For Strasburg Start Against Braves Less Than Avg. on Resale Market PDF Print E-mail

Stephen StrasburgIf you’re in Atlanta and looking to catch Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals against the Braves, you may find the best place to get a ticket is on the resale market. According to ticket resale and analysis company SeatGeek.com, tickets for tonight’s game at Turner Field are selling for an average of $38.31 or slightly less than the average prices for a Braves home game ($39.03).

But, don’t think that Strasburg isn’t generating more interest than other games against the Nationals. Tuesday and Weds. games in the series sees $33.87 and $33.90 respectively, or 13 percent lower than the Strasburg start tonight, airing on ESPN's Monday Night Baseball (7 p.m. on ESPN2).

(NOTE: Jason Heyward will not be in tonight's game)

The bloom may be off the rose, however. Strasburg’s last road start, his second overall in Cleveland saw an average transaction price of $49.68, or 30 percent more than the average sale price on the resale market for tonight’s game.

Stephen Strasburg

UPDATE: The Strasburg Tracker has been updated with attendance, ticket, and game stats


Was it the Kansas City Royals, or is the hype starting to slow a bit?

Tickets for Stephen Strasburg’s fourth start, and third at Nationals Park sold for an average of $48.81 on the resale market, down 5 percent from an average of $51.46 for all other Nationals games, according to ticket reseller and research company SeatGeek.com.

In a sign that Strasburg’s starts are greatly influencing the Nationals ticket resale average, over the last 9 games at Nationals Park in which Strasburg was not the starter, only the Sunday June 6 game against the Reds had a higher ticket resale average ($52.98) than Weds. game against the Royals, the lowest ticket resale price of the three starts by Strasburg at Nationals Park.

In related news, the 31,913 for Weds. game was the first non-sellout for a Strasburg start at Nationals Park. Still, the attendance figure represented a 39 percent increase from the Nationals average 23,040 for home games.

Father’s Day Attendance in MLB Shows Mixed Results PDF Print E-mail

Father's DayBaseball is a father and son game. If you’ve ever played the game or seen Field of Dreams, you understand the concept. So, you’d think a day dedicated to Dads would act as a natural attendance bonus day on the MLB schedule.

At first glance, this appears to be the case. The Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates all drew more than 25 percent above their usual Sunday average. Overall, the league drew more than 52,000 more fans (or 9.99 percent more) than it would on a normal Sunday game. Only two teams, the Florida Marlins and Chicago Cubs, drew less than their Sunday average (Chicago missed by 169 fans). However, we must keep in mind that improved weather and quality matchups may play a role in swaying the Sunday attendance statistic.

Teams typically draw better on weekends, especially during times kids are in school. Father’s Day showed improvement when compared to weekend games (typically between 14-17 dates per team) drawing 32,562 more fans than usual or 6.2 percent. The Colorado Rockies drew 20 percent more on Father’s Day than the average weekend day (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) while Pittsburgh and Washington drew more than 20 percent above average.

But, as with the Sunday attendance data, it may be inaccurate due to outside factors. The stat that gives us the best idea of whether Father’s Day was the expected bonus is the comparison to previous weekend games within the same series. For example, Detroit played at home against Arizona Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If Father’s Day were a boost, Detroit would see increased attendance Sunday because all the factors (weather, school being out etc.) remained the same. Within the series, more teams fell short on Father’s Day than gained. Overall, the league drew 1.7 percent less, but in Florida, Washington (stats affected by Strasburg start), Pittsburgh and Atlanta, the attendances were more than 10 percent less than the previous two games of the series.

Last year on Father’s Day MLB drew significantly better than it did in 2010. Nearly 38,000 more fans came to MLB ballparks in 2009 on Father’s Day. It is possible that better ’09 matchups may have caused the differences, but six teams drew over 40,000 in ’09 while only four matched the feat in ’10.

Attendances have been a major storyline thus far in 2010. Many teams count on special dates such as Father’s Day to offer them a spike at the turnstiles, the expected jump only existed for Colorado. The Rockies drew 23 percent more fans on Father’s Day than the previous two games of the weekend series. Outside of the Rockies, the next highest jump was the Toronto Blue Jays who were up eight percent from the previous series games.

On Father's Day, What Are MLB Tickets Going for on Resale Market? PDF Print E-mail

Ticket & Attendance Watch

Sunday, 20 June 2010 12:17

With Father’s Day at hand, taking in a ball game with “the old man” is always a great option. But, what are tickets going for on the open market? Who has the best deals? Here’s a breakdown of what’s up for grab on Father’s Day as of 6/18.

Out of all 15 MLB games this weekend, the lowest average prices of tickets can be found in Denver when the Rockies take on the Brewers ($30.25), as well as in DC when the White Sox are at the Nationals ($30.00). The highest average asking priced tickets are found in Boston for the return of Manny at $136 (see how much tickets are actually selling for this weekend with this Forbes article, Red Sox Fans Paying Extra to See Manny Being Manny), as well as New York for the Mets - Yankees game ($116).

Remember, this is how much prices are on the resale market, not what they are transacting for (for example, the numbers can be skewed if someone tries putting a ticket up for sale for $1 million). Still, it’s an interesting look this Father’s Day.

Stephen Strasburg

Interest for Stephen Strasburg’s third start, and second at Nationals Park, remains high, but not nearly at the white-hot pace it was for his debut.

According to ticket reseller and research firm SeatGeek.com, tickets for tonight’s game at Nationals Park against the White Sox in interleague is transacting at $56.26, or just over half as much as the $103.28 that was the average sale price on the resale market for his debut.

The $56.26 resale average for tonight’s game is up 9 percent from the average transacted resale price of $51.46 for home games at Nationals Park this season.

Stephen Strasburg

Today, at 7pm ET (MLB Network’s Bob Costas, Jim Kaat and John Smoltz will call the game, more details here), the most highly anticipated pitcher debut since Mark Prior will occur when Stephen Strasburg will take the hill for the Washington Nationals against the Pittsburg Pirates.

Interest in the game has been phenomenal (look for more by me on Forbes later on Tuesday). But, maybe the biggest reason to think that this is certainly much, much more than an ordinary Nationals game on a Tuesday is this: according to ticket forecast and resale company SeatGeek, the ticket price on the secondary market for the Strasburg debut game tonight is 146 percent higher than home games beginning in May, and nearly double what the cost for Sunday’s game with the Reds went for.

 And while the Nationals tell The Biz of Baseball that Opening Day with the Phillies may draw more, there’s little doubting that this is the biggest draw for the Nationals since. Remember, the game is with the Pirates on a Tuesday…  Under 20,000 would have been the norm for Nationals Park. Far be it from that… far be it from that.

Stephen Strasburg

There’s been little to smile about with the Washington Nationals since the club was relocated from Montreal to DC in 2005. But, that’s all changed since the Nats drafted Stephen Strasburg with the overall first pick in last year’s First Year Player Draft. Interest has been high during his minor league stint (see Stephen Strasburg is Marketing Gold for the Minors), and the Nationals and MLB Network have gotten into the mix.

But the real indication of interest in Strasburg might lie in the secondary ticket market.

According to ticket reseller and forecast company SeatGeek.com, since Strasburg's debut was officially announced on June 1, Nationals tickets are transacting at $105.87 since the announcement. Prior to that, Washington Nationals tickets sold for an average of $51.11 this season, half the entrance price on the resale market to see Strasburg's debut.

The hype around Strasburg's MLB debut drove Nationals ticket prices up over the last few weeks. For the first half of May, Nationals tickets sold at $42.28 and from May 15th to June 1st they went up to $61.15. Ticket sales for the Nationals moved them from the 19th most popular team in MLB on the resale market during the first half of May to the 7th most popular team (sandwiched between the Phillies and the Twins).

The larger question will be, can Strasburg handle the pressure, and how will sales go once the inevitable off-game(s) come?

The Biz of Baseball will begin a "Strasburg Tracker" beginning on June 8th looking at attendance and other factors in the highly touted pitcher's debut season.

Stephen Strasburg

Some had been wondering when, or if, the Washington Nationals would begin marketing the major league debut of pitching phenom, Stephen Strasburg. With the Nationals moving back in the standings (26-26, .500 and now sitting tied for last in the NL East with the Mets and Marlins) while drawing 26,760, or 24th in the league for attendance, the words "all the help you can get" comes to mind.

Today, that finally changed.

It was officially announced that Strasburg will start the June 8th game against the Pirates at Nationals Park. Leveraging the event, the Nationals will offer Season Ticket Holders the exclusive opportunity to purchase up to four additional tickets beginning at 10:00am on Wednesday, June 2. Tickets will be sold through Thursday, June 3 while supplies last.

The Biz of Baseball will be starting a "Strasburg Tracker" to see how he draws, both home and away.
