2013 vs. 2014 Attendance

We take the number of home games through the current date for each team, then look at the same number of home games last year, and compare the attendance between those two sets of games. This means that the dates won't match up, but given the differing capacities of ballparks I believe this gives a more accurate view. Also, all single-admission doubleheaders are counted only once in the attendance total and a zero is used for the other game of the doubleheader.
