MLB teams by attendance


Three stadiums have been sold-out in nearly every game this season: AT&T Park in San Francisco, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and Fenway Park in Boston. By the official figures (which come with a heavy dose of salt), Giants home games have been standing-room-only in aggregate, averaging 41,593 fans with a capacity of 41,503.

On a raw basis, the Dodgers have been baseball’s best-drawing team by a fair margin, with 46,506 fans per game in cavernous Dodger Stadium. Cleveland and Tampa Bay are in a close fight for last place in the capacity standings, practically even as of Tuesday night. In general, better teams tend to fill closer to capacity, but it’s far from a perfect relationship.
