Notes:
1) #1 and #2 for per game are one-team states (the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Albuquerque Isotopes)
2) The top states for indy league per-game attendance are Minnesota (St. Paul Saints), New York (Long Island Ducks, Rockland Boulders) and Kansas (Kansas City T-Bones/Wichita Wingnuts).
3) The states without affiliated teams: Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Alaska/Hawaii/Wyoming don’t have indy league teams either.
4) The 5 indy leagues included are the American Association (3435 a game), Atlantic League (4152 a game), Frontier League (2439 a game), Can-Am League (1976 a game), and the United League of Baseball (1225 a game). The Pecos League doesn’t have exact figures available (and didn’t draw much in their estimates anyways). Several other leagues were also incomplete.
4b) The difference between affiliated and indy ball is that the affiliated teams are farm teams for major league teams. Indy teams aren’t affiliated with MLB teams (as you’d expect) and are able to sell player contracts to MLB teams if a player meets the MLB teams needs. Indy league teams also either serve unfilled markets or markets which don’t have minor league teams due to territorial rights (such as St. Paul or the Kansas City, KS based KC T-Bones)
5) The California League and Florida State League inflate the total number of games played in those states, and also jackhammer the per-game numbers. The California League drew 2275 a game. The Florida State League drew 1606 per game.
6) The other bottom 9 states include states mostly/entirely served by short-season (June-September) teams (West Virginia, Montana, Idaho, Vermont), two mainly Midwestern League states (Iowa/Wisconsin), The Mississippi Braves, the state of Florida, and Arizona. Arizona’s total is made up entirely of Tucson Padres games and the attendance lagged because the team was moving from Tucson to El Paso post-2013. I don’t think there’s a single affiliated team which charges for attendance that is operating in Arizona in 2014.
So, I think I covered lots of stuff. The color scheme is probably better. I can understand if the text is a little much.
