ALL-STAR CELLY IS OVER, AND MLB’S BUSINESS MODEL IS CRATERING!

By Peter Gleason

The All-Star Break is over.

And after the glitter of the game in Dodger Stadium has faded, it’s time for MLB to focus on the cold, hard fact that its business model is cratering:

The league averaged 26,409 tickets sold per game in the first half of the season, down 5% compared to the same period in 2019.

Should the trend hold, this year would be the eighth in a row in which MLB attendance dropped, not counting 2020 and 2021, in which attendance was severely limited due to pandemic-related restrictions.

A 5% decline in attendance would be the largest since the 6.9% dip in 2009.

Compared to last season, when many teams restricted ticket sales, attendance is up 113%.
