parislemon:

Fascinating interactive map by The New York Times new site, TheUpshot, showcasing baseball fandom around the country (from Facebook data).

Note that neither the Mets nor the A’s show up at all. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, the Yankees control most of the areas without any true geographical connections to teams.

I think most would be surprised that it was the Mets, not the Yankees, who first drew 3 million fans to their ballpark in N.Y. There are many variables as to why, but I don’t think people realize how much those 80s Mets owned N.Y.
