With the 2018 CPBL second-half season starting tonight, here is the late edition of the first-half season review. We will be covering the basic overall graphical standings, run differential and the attendance record for the 2018 first-half season.
Graphical Standings – First Half Season Review
With 38 wins and 22 losses, the Lamigo Monkeys have won the 2018 CPBL first-half season championship, and at the same secured a spot in the 2018 Taiwan Series.
Despite the Uni-Lions started chasing the Monkeys halfway through the first-half season, the Uni-Lions lost a few critical games and fall short in the end, finished in the second place with 35 wins and 25 losses.
Things are not so rosy for the Guardians and the Brothers, as both teams have struggled throughout the first half season. Finished third (27 wins, 33 losses) and last (20 wins, 40 losses) in the overall standings.

Attendance Plus – First Half Season Review
Here is the “average attendance percentage vs the league average attendance”. I guess in a way, we can call it “The Attendance Plus/ ATT+”. Just think of this as the “OPS+, wRC+ and ERA+” but it is use for for attendance.
So, how do we use this? The league average will equal 100. If a team’s ATT+ is 160 then the team is performing 60% better than the league average attendance. Whereas if a team’s ATT+ is at 60, then that team is performing 40% lower than the league average attendance.
- Lamigo Monkeys: 137 ATT+.
- Fubon Guardians: 109 ATT+.
- Chinatrust Brothers: 80 ATT+.
- Uni-Lions: 74 ATT+.
