The International League of Triple-A minor league baseball consists of 14 teams organized into three divisions: North, South, and West. The following data show the average attendance for the 15 teams in the International League. Also shown are the teams’ records; W denotes the number of games won, L denotes the number of games lost, and PCT is the proportion of games played that were won. A test for any difference in the mean attendance for the three divisions has been requested. Data can be found in the file Triple-A
