NY Times map of baseball fans

5 posts in this topic

Here is a fun thing - a map from the Times showing where the baseball fans are located.

I don't see any Mets or White Sox fans. And I am surprised that the territory of the Texas Rangers fans is so much greater than that of the Houston Astros.

Apparently the grey space throughout the country represents Yankees fans.

I'm going to my first White Sox game of the year later this week.

I would have thought the Cardinals cutting a wider swath of fanship, as they were the southern team for so many years. Plus, I've always found the Braves one of the dullest teams to watch.

So anyone who doesn't have a big league local team to root for falls back on the Yankees? As if they were the national baseball default setting? Sad. But the map looks likely, for the most part.

There are not a majority of A's fans anywhere in the Bay Area, not even in Oakland. Sadly, that explains a lot.
