MLB Attendance Has dropped to the lowest its been in 15 years

 

While there are no statistics readily available on how much this drop is actually costing the league, a quick calculation based on annual league-wide attendance rates, the 2,430 games played each season, and an average price of $76 per ticket estimates a loss of nearly $355 million on ticket sales alone.

While rain and unusually cold weather plagued the first half of the season and has been the cause of nearly 36 postponements to date, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said that the league is “concerned that there’s something to [low attendance rates] more than weather.” Sixty percent of the league has posted a worse attendance date already in 2018 than in all of 2017, with 10 teams dropping by 10 percent or more.
