Interleague comparison

OK, this isn't about the Biscuits or even minor league baseball. You've been warned.

Major League Baseball lauded interleague play Monday by comparing the average fans per game between interleague and intraleague games.

"First weekend of Interleague Play draws 26.4 percent attendance increase." It seems that there was an average of 36,483 fans at this weekend's 42 interleague games, compared to an average of 29,148 for the rest of the season.

If interleague play is such a draw at the gate, then I have a suggestion ...

Play interleague games at the first of April.
