So far this season, the average combined attendance for the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles ranks fourth of the five major league markets with more than one team.

An analysis by The Washington Post shows attendance in the Baltimore-Washington region trails Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco-Oakland -- but is slightly ahead of Chicago.

Nationals attendance is averaging just over 32,000 people per game. The Orioles are averaging about 29,700. That's a combined attendance of almost 62,000 people per game.
