Today is opening day for Major League Baseball 2014, and Facebook has released a handy map which plots the distribution of each team’s fans across U.S. The results were calculated by going county by county and tallying the number of likes per each team’s Facebook page. The New York Yankees are the most rooted for team across the country, followed by the Atlanta Braves and the Texas Rangers. The New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics did not have enough likes in any county to be top teams anywhere in the U.S. Interestingly, Louisiana and Nebraska, the two states without MLB club teams, were the most divided states in terms of who to root for.
Facebook’s gearing up for the MLB season, are you?
