The Week That Was: August 31

Ballpark DigestMetrodome recycling, affiliation news, attendance records and positioning for 2015 were the leading stories of the past week on Ballpark Digest, as measured by page views.

We hit a few milestones this past week as well: we surpassed 10 million page views for the year, for the third year in a row. The difference: in 2013 and 2012, we reached that number in December. This year, we reached it in August. Thanks to all of you; we couldn’t do this without you. Thanks also to our advertisers — Resnick Amsterdam Leshner, Populous, Professional Sports Catering and Wheelhouse Sports Marketing — who also make this possible.
