5 2013 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ATTENDANCE Page 2 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ATTENDANCE REPORTING GUIDELINES All attendance figures used in this analysis were obtained from the Major League Baseball Information System, and are for tickets sold. Tickets purchased, but never used, are included in attendance totals. All professional sports leagues in North America now use this method to compile official attendance. So quite often, actual attendance in the ballpark is significantly lower than the official announced attendance. Until 1993, the National League only counted tickets sold and actually used, as their official paid attendance. The National League didn t count no-shows in their attendance figures through American League figures did include the no-shows for many years before then. Attendance from years prior to 1998 was obtained from Total Baseball -The Ultimate Baseball Encyclopedia 8 th Edition, published in Major League Baseball issues a report on attendance right after the regular season. Those figures are later audited, and changes are sometimes made. This can result in discrepancies in attendance figures listed by different sources, such as team media guides, the Major League Averages Book, the American League Red Book, the National League Green Book, and The Sporting News Complete Baseball Record Book. Changes made to the 2013 figures were published in the 2014 American League Red Book and National League Green Book, and those updated numbers are used in this report. Special thanks to Pete Palmer, editor of the ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia, for providing a correction to those published figures. Unlike some other leagues, Major League Baseball announced regular season attendance figures often, but not always, do not include tickets that teams give away free. Announced attendance for post-season games is for all tickets distributed. That is why the listed attendance for sold out post-season games is almost always higher than listed attendance for sold out regular season games. Some ballparks have fewer seats available for post-season play because sections in the stands are used as additional media seating. WHAT S A SELLOUT? Each team has its own policy on declaring a home game as a sellout. It is unofficially defined as all seats available for public purchase to a particular game being sold out. Free tickets provided to players, league and team officials, and other guests, may, or may not be, included in the announced attendance for each game. So a game listed as a sellout may have an announced attendance figure that is less than the ballpark s seating capacity, and there may be plenty of empty seats at the game. Standing-room tickets sold are included in the official game attendance. But the standing-room tickets don t have to be sold out for a game to be listed as a sellout. As long as all available seats to a game are sold, it s a sellout. This is a fair policy since not all teams sell standing-room tickets. In 2012, Boston and San Francisco sold out every home game. San Francisco s sellout streak continued through the entire 2013 season, reaching 246 straight regular season (plus 15 post-season) games. The Giants sold standing-room tickets. Attendance at AT&T Park in 2013 ranged from a low of 41,048 to a high of 42,747. Boston s streak ended at 794 straight regular season sellouts (820 straight including post-season) after Opening Day During Boston s streak, they listed a number of games as sellouts even though some obstructed view seats for those games were unsold. However, the total number of seats sold or donated to charity, plus standingroom tickets sold for those games, exceeded Fenway Park s seating capacity. The Philadelphia Phillies ended their National League record sellout streak in 2012 at 257 regular season games (273 including post-season). San Francisco set a new National League sellout streak record in April, EXCEPT WHERE SPECIFICALLY NOTED OTHERWISE, ALL TEAM, LEAGUE, AND OVERALL MAJOR LEAGUE ATTENDANCE FIGURES IN THIS REPORT ARE FOR HOME, REGULAR SEASON GAMES ONLY.

Attendance rose 2.0% in 2012 and 0.5% in 2011, fell 0.4% in 2010, and there had been a 6.6% decline in American League teams, and 2013 National League teams, each had a combined decline of 1.1%. Average attendance per date was 30,515 in 2013, down 380 from the 2012 average of 30,895. American League teams averaged 28,494 per date (down 377 from 2012), while the National League teams averaged 32,539 (down 382). These averages include interleague games. They also list Houston with the American League for both 2013 and In 2012, when Houston was still in the National League, the 16 teams in the National League that year averaged 32,102 per date, while the 14 American League teams drew an average of 29,517 per date. The Los Angeles Dodgers led the Majors in attendance by a wide margin, drawing 3,743,527, an average of 46,216 per date. They had 29 sellouts, their most since 1983, and topped 50,000 at 34 games. The New York Yankees led the American League for the 11 th year in a row, with a total of 3,279,589, an average of 40,489 per date. Yankees attendance has topped 3 million for 15 straight years. Top road attendance honors went to the Dodgers, who drew 2,863,247 (35,349 per date) away from home. The Yankees led the A.L. in road attendance, attracting 2,690,614 (33,633 per date). Tampa Bay had the lowest attendance in the Majors. They became the first team in MLB history to reach the post-season in a year that they had the lowest attendance either in their own league, or in the Major Leagues overall. The Rays are also just the 6 th team to have the lowest attendance among all Major League teams, and the 16 th team to post the lowest attendance their own league, in a year when they had a winning record. In 2012, the Rays also had the lowest MLB attendance and a winning record. Among these 16 teams, only the 2012 and 2013 Rays had at least 90 wins. The 2013 Rays, who won 92 and lost 71 (including the Tiebreaker game), had the best record ever for a team with the worst attendance in their league. There have been 16 teams since 1900 that had the best attendance in their league, yet had a losing record. 8 of these teams had the best attendance that year in the Majors. The 1993 Colorado Rockies, playing their first season, set the all-time Major League attendance record of 4,483,350, with a record of The 1902 New York Giants led the National League in attendance, but won just 44 games while losing 88. The 1999 Rockies are the most recent team to lead all of the Majors in attendance in a losing season, and the 2005 Dodgers are the most recent team to lead its league, while posting a losing record. 7 American League teams, and 8 National League teams, had gains in total attendance in teams had increases of at least 200,000. On a percentage basis, 4 teams were up over 10%. 8 teams were down at least 200,000, and 5 teams had percentage losses of at least 10%. All 8 National League teams with gains in total attendance also were up in average per date. 6 American League teams had gains in average per date. Kansas City had a small increase in total attendance, but was down in average per date because they played one more date in 2013 than in The 300 interleague dates drew 9,313,939, an average of 31,046 per date. Non-interleague games averaged 30,439 per date, so the interleague games averaged just 2.0% more than the non-interleague average. In 2012, interleague games averaged 34,693 per date, which was 13.9% above the average of 30,454 per date for non-interleague games. In most seasons prior to 2013, interleague games averaged about 10-12% higher attendance than noninterleague games. But until 2013, nearly all interleague games were played from late May to early July when attendance is usually higher than at the start and end of the season. With each league having 15 teams due to the move of the Astros to the American League in 2013, there was at least one interleague game played nearly every day of the season.

8 2013 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ATTENDANCE Page ATTENDANCE OVERVIEW -- SUMMARY There were 3 more dates played in 2013 than in This includes the 2013 Tiebreaker game at Texas which determined the second American League Wild Card team. That game is officially an extra regular season game, so all statistics, including attendance, are included in the regular season stats. Bad weather helped lead to an early-season downward trend in attendance, but it then bounced back attendance averaged 29,991 per date for combined April, May, and June dates. This was down 4.0% from the 2012 combined average per date of 31,236 for those months. But for July, August, and September combined, the 2013 average per date was 31,039, up 1.5% from the 2012 combined average of 30,582 for those months. In 2013, July had the highest average per date (32,399), while April had the lowest (28,822). In 2012, the highest average per date was in June (33,377), while September (29,021) had the lowest average. The higher average per date in June, 2012 was helped by the large number of interleague games played that month. (2013 data is from the MLB Information System, and 2012 figures come from the 2013 team media guides.) 8 teams drew more than 3 million (The record is 10 teams). 15 teams surpassed 2.5 million, and 22 teams topped 2 million. Miami was the only National League team to draw under 2 million and 2012 are the only seasons that every Major League team surpassed 1.5 million in attendance. Boston won 28 more games in 2013 than in 2012, and Cleveland increased its win total by 24. But attendance fell for both teams. They became just the 4 th and 5 th teams since 1901 that saw attendance fall in a season where the team won at least 24 more games than the year before. Since 1901, 54 teams have increased their win total by at least 24 from one season to the next. After achieving the largest increase in attendance in the Majors in 2012 (698, %), the Miami Marlins had the largest decline in Total attendance fell 633,122, with average per date down 7,817. This ranks as the 16 th worst single season total attendance decline by a team in Major League history, and also as the 4 th largest drop by a team in its second year in a new ballpark. Toronto had the largest increase in both total attendance and average per date. The Blue Jays were up 436,899 (20.8%), and 5,394 per date. The Dodgers had a 419,281 (5,176 per date) gain. The largest crowd of the season was 53,393 at Dodger Stadium on September 12 for Magic Johnson Bobblehead Night. The Yankees drew 49,514 on Opening Day, which was the highest attendance at an American League park. 3 of the 10 teams to make the 2013 post-season had declines in attendance. The Red Sox were down 209,670, Rays attendance declined by 49,381, and the Indians dipped 30,670. For the 3 rd season in a row, the team that won the World Series had a decline in attendance. The Dodgers topped 2 million for the 41 st consecutive season. Atlanta topped 2 million for the 23 rd straight year, and Boston reached this mark for the 19 th year in a row, tying the American League record for consecutive 2 million seasons held by Baltimore ( ). The Yankees, Cubs, and Cardinals each have drawn more than 2 million for 18 straight seasons through Seattle s 15 year streak of topping 2 million ended in The Yankees topped 2.5 million for the 20 th time, most ever for an American League team, but the Dodgers have now reached 2.5 million 40 times. St. Louis has done it 24 times. Pittsburgh is the only recent non-expansion team whose current all-time attendance record was set in a year when they had a losing record. The Pirates set their high mark in 2001, the year PNC Park opened. (Miami, Colorado, Tampa Bay, Washington, and Arizona, each set their records in their first season.) Attendance declines in 2013, 2010 and 2009 pushed figures back below levels reached prior to the 1994 strike average attendance per date of 30,515 is 822 below the 1993 average of 31,337. If 1998 expansion teams Tampa Bay and Arizona are excluded, the 2013 average for the 28 teams that operated in 1993 rises to 31,088 per date, which is a loss of 249 from 1993.

9 2013 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ATTENDANCE Page ATTENDANCE OVERVIEW -- SUMMARY TEAM-BY-TEAM SUMMARY AMERICAN LEAGUE Baltimore Attendance was up 255,321 to 2,357,561. This is their highest figure since Boston Despite going from last place to first in the American League East, and winning 28 more games than in 2012, the Red Sox drew 2,833,333, down 209,670. Boston became the 36 th team to have a drop in attendance in season when they won the World Series. They had topped 3 million in each of the previous 5 seasons, and this was their smallest total attendance since Their average per date was over 30,000 for the 15 th straight year. There were 30 sellouts, but The Streak ended. The sellout streak, covering 9 full seasons, and starting on May 15, 2003, ended on April 10 at 794 regular season games, and 820 when post-season games are included. This was the longest sellout streak in North American Major League sports history, breaking the record of 814 held by the Portland Trail Blazers of the NBA. The Dayton Dragons of the Minor League Baseball Midwest League, have the longest sellout streak in American sports, having sold out all 1,010 dates in their history through early-june, Chicago White Sox Attendance fell for the 7 th year in a row, tying the Major League record for consecutive attendance declines with the White Sox, the Pirates, the Rockies, and the Braves. Their total attendance of 1,768,544 was the team s lowest since Cleveland Had 24 more wins than in 2012, and was the lead A.L. Wild Card team, finishing the regular season with 10 straight wins. But attendance was down slightly to 1,572,926, the 2 nd lowest total in the Majors. Detroit Topped 3 million for the 4 th time in the last 7 seasons. Achieved their 4 th straight increase to 3,083,397, their 2 nd best total ever. Average per date was better than 30,000 for the 8 th consecutive year. Prior to 2006, the Tigers averaged at least 30,000 per date just twice in their history. There were 34 sellouts at Comerica Park in Houston - In their first A.L. season, the Astros ended a 6 year streak of attendance declines, with a gain of 2.7%. They became the 16 th team in MLB history to lose at least 110 games in a season, and the 17 th team to suffer 100 losses in 3 straight years. The Astros drew 1,651,911, which isn t even close to the record attendance for a team with 110+ losses. In 2004, 111 loss Arizona drew 2,519,560. The 1965 Mets, who drew 1,768,389, hold the record for a team with at least 3 straight 100 loss seasons. Kansas City The Royals have not topped 2 million since But their 2013 attendance of 1,750,732 was their 3 rd best total since Los Angeles Angels Topped 3 million for the 11 th straight year, but had their smallest total since Minnesota Their decline of 298,710 (10.8%) was the biggest total and percentage drop among American League teams. The Twins averaged better than 30,000 per date for the 4 th straight year, a level they had reached just twice before moving to Target Field in Their total of 2,477,644 is second only to the 2013 Chicago Cubs among teams that have lost at least 90 games for 3 years in a row. New York Yankees Led the American League in attendance for the 11 th straight year. The Yankees drew over 3 million for the 15 th consecutive season, which ties the MLB record held by the Dodgers from 1996 through But Yankee attendance fell 7.4% in 2013 to its lowest total since 2001, and their average per date was the lowest since Oakland Attendance of 1,809,302 was the best since The A s had 13 sellouts. Seattle 2.3% increase ends a streak of 5 straight declines. Texas Attendance fell 8.1% to 3,178,273, ending a streak of 4 straight years with total attendance increases of at least 10%. But the 2013 total is still the second highest in Rangers history. Attendance from the Wild Card Tiebreaker game vs. Tampa Bay is included in the total because that game is considered to be an extension of the regular season. Despite the decline in 2013, Rangers attendance is up 63.3% since 2008.

10 2013 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ATTENDANCE Page ATTENDANCE OVERVIEW -- SUMMARY TEAM-BY-TEAM SUMMARY AMERICAN LEAGUE Tampa Bay Won 90 games for the 5 th time in the last 6 years, which is best in MLB. But they only drew 1,510,300, which was worst in MLB in It was the team s smallest total since The Rays have posted the American League s worst attendance in 9 of the last 13 years. Their 2013 total is the lowest for any team making the playoffs since Florida in 2003, and is the lowest for an A.L. playoff team since the 1975 Oakland A s. The 2013 Rays are the first team to ever make the post-season in a year in which they had the lowest attendance either in their own league or in the Majors overall. They also had the best record (92-71) ever for a team that finished last in attendance. Toronto They had a very disappointing year on the field, but a very successful one at the gate. Attendance rose 436,899 (20.8%), the best total and percentage gains of any MLB team. The total attendance of 2,536,562 was the best for the Blue Jays since TEAM-BY-TEAM SUMMARY NATIONAL LEAGUE Arizona Had a slight decline, but still has topped 2 million in all 16 years of operation.

Cincinnati Total of 2,492,059 was up 6.2%, and was the best ever at Great American Ballpark. It was the Reds greatest total since 2000, and second highest since They had a team record-high 16 sellouts. Colorado Up 6.2% to 2,793,828, the 6 th straight year above 2.5 million. The Rockies have topped the 2 million mark in 20 of the team s 21 seasons. Los Angeles Dodgers Drew 3,743,527 to lead the Major Leagues in attendance for the 23 rd time since moving to Los Angeles in This was the 29 th time the Dodgers have led the N.L. since then. Also led the Majors in road attendance.

Miami Lowest N.L. Attendance. Decline of 633,122 (28.5%) was the biggest decrease of The total attendance drop was the 16 th worst of all time, and the 4 th worst ever for a team in the second year in a new ballpark.

It was their 10 th straight year above 3 million, and the 17 th time they ve reached that mark. There were 25 sellouts at Busch Stadium. The Cards have averaged over 35,000 per date in each of the last 16 years, and have drawn better than 40,000 per date in 8 of the last 9 seasons. San Diego Had their best attendance since They ve reached 2 million in 17 of the last 18 years. San Francisco Sold out every game again. The Giants sellout streak was 246 regular season dates through Since AT&T Park opened in 2000, through 2013, 693 of 1,134 (61.1%) regular season dates have been sellouts, and 1,117 (98.5%) of those dates have had crowds of at least 30,000. In April, 2014, the Giants broke the N.L. record for consecutive sellouts. Average per date has been above 35,000 in all 14 seasons in this park, and total attendance has topped 3 million in 12 of these seasons. The Giants have averaged 39,442 per date in their 14 years ( ) at AT&T Park, which is 94.1% of capacity. Washington The total of 2,652,408, up 11.9%, was the best at Nationals Park, and the second highest in the history of this franchise, including the Montreal Expos years ( ). The only year with a better attendance than 2013 came in 2005, the Nationals first year in Washington. The table on page 9 shows each team s 2013 and 2012 total attendance, the change in 2013 vs total attendance, both on a number and percentage basis, and the 2013 average per date for each team. League totals compare 2013 vs attendance for the teams in each league in Houston was in the National League in 2013, but their 2012 totals are included on the American League Total line for both years. The 2013 National League Total does not include Houston for Actual 2012 league totals, which have Houston in the National League, are noted at the bottom of the page. The same procedure is followed for the table on page 10, which shows each team s average per date in 2013 and 2012, and the 2013 vs change in average per date. Check the note at the bottom of the page to see the actual 14 team 2012 average per date for the American League, and the actual 16 team 2012 average per date for the National League. The page 10 table also ranks the teams from 1-30 from the highest to the lowest average per date for both 2013 and Seating capacity is for 2013, and was obtained from 2013 team media guides. Not all teams listed the number of games sold out in either their game notes or media guides. SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND ABOUT THE BIG DECLINES IN NEW YORK IN 2009 In 2009, the Yankees had the biggest loss ever for a team that won a division, and/or the World Series. The Mets had the second worst attendance decline in Major League history. The main reason for the drop in attendance for both teams is that they each drew more than 4 million in 2008, and then moved into smaller ballparks in Even if both teams had sold out every game in 2009, they still would have posted a significant decline in attendance. Old Yankee Stadium had a seating capacity of 57,545, while new Yankee Stadium s capacity is now 49,642. Shea Stadium s capacity was 57,365. Citi Field has 41,922 seats (It had 41,800 seats from 2009 through 2011). The Colorado Rockies and the St. Louis Cardinals are the only other teams to draw at least 3 million in the final full season in a ballpark. Colorado set the all time Major League attendance record in 1993, their only full season in Mile High Stadium, when they drew 4,483,350. St. Louis drew 3,538,948 in 2005, their final year in Busch Memorial Stadium. Both of these teams moved to smaller ballparks.
