Sox attendance: 14 percent below average

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ October 19, 2009 4:44 pm


Here is the attendance index for each team (taken simply as the fans per home game, divided by the MLB average, for that season), averaged from 1969-2006.  Number 1 is the Dodgers, who had 61% more fans than average, on average (while playing .534 ball in that time frame):

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.86		0.501		38	CHA

That’s 86%. 14% below average.

How about when the Sox play under .500?

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.72		0.45		18	CHA

That’s 72%. 28% below average.

and when the Sox play over .500:

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.98		0.548		20	CHA

That’s 98%. Just 2% below average.

So, keep winning and the fans will be coming Kenny!
