MLB teams are averaging 30,294 fans per game through Aug. 23, flat compared to the same period last year. AL clubs are seeing a 1% increase to date, fueled by double-digit percentage gains at home for the Rangers, Blue Jays and Indians. The Twins and Red Sox continue to fill their venues to at least 100% capacity, while the Orioles and Blue Jays are two of only four MLB clubs drawing under 50% capacity. The Mariners and Rays continue to see sharp drops at home. Listed below is AL attendance through Aug. 23, with comparisons to the same period last year.
