Orioles Average Attendance 2023 By Game
Baltimore Orioles attendance 2023 of 22,987 per game is an increase from the previous year. They had an average attendance of 16,893 during the 2022 MLB season.
One of the main reasons for the increase in spectators is their form in the major league. They are currently at the top of the American League with a record of 73-40.
They are second in the major league, only behind the Atlanta Braves. The team has not appeared in the postseason since the 2016 season, where they lost to the Blue Jays in the Wild Card game.
This is the first time since the 2017 MLB season that their average attendance has reached above 20,000. After the 2016 season, the Orioles were in a long rebuild phase which hampered their attendance as the team's performance was not that good.
Compared to last season, Orioles Park has seen an increase of 36 percent in the number of visitors this year. They struggled out of the gate last season and had an average of 16,305 visitors through the first 29 games, which later increased to 16,893.
However, they still trail most of the teams in the major league, ranking 22nd through the first 56 home games of the 2023 season. The last time Baltimore finished a season with a better rank was in 2016, when they were 20th in league with an average attendance of 26,819.
The club has a loyal fan base, with most supporting the team during their rebuild phase and poor performance. The support is also reflected in the number of spectators this season.
The pitching and batting park factor of the ballpark is 98, meaning it is favorable for the pitchers. An aspect of 100 is neutral, and above 100 favors batters, whereas less than 100 favors pitchers.
The factor has been essential in the Orioles being top of the AL as their pitchers Kyle Bradish, Tyler Wells, Kyle Gibson, and Dean Kremer are among the best in the major league this year.
Further, fan-favorite players such as Gunnar Henderson, Anthony Santander, Adley Rutschman, and Austin Hays are also a reason for the increased number of fans. These players have been producing some of the best action for the fans to enjoy and drive them to the stadium.
Orioles attendance last night against the Houston Astros was 24,761. The game was interesting, with the home team leading 6-3 at the end of the eighth inning.
However, the away side scored four runs at the top of the final inning, taking the lead. The home side could not bounce back from that and eventually lost the match.
