The Baseball Map of America

The long darkness known as the baseball off-season is finally over. In cartographic celebration of this sporting Eostre, here is the map of the countries of baseball in North America:



Thirty teams, thirty countries, one evil empire.

Go to a sporting event in the summer in Greater Montreal and you will see -- Montreal is Nationals country still. Curly W's everywhere!

Chachy said...

There's something a little bit sad about that.

thirty-seven said...

Surely some of these teams have support in Canada, surely the Toronto Blue Jays have support outside of just southern Ontario, and I know that the Boston Red Sox are the team to cheer for in the Maritime provinces of Canada.

Chachy said...

37: Yeah, I know the Sox are big in the Maritimes. As for the rest of Canada, I sort of assumed the Blue Jays would be the team of choice in places like Winnipeg and Edmonton, but I don't know. Maybe the Mariners are big in BC? Maybe Manitobans like the Twins?

BJ said...

This is great work...on the question of who Canadians root for, here's a map showing which teams are blacked out in favor of local broadcasters. Red Sox, Twins, and Mariners carve out chunks along with Toronto.

Just to throw it in, blackout map for the lower 48 here:

Chachy said...

BJ - thanks for that. But I don't get the MLB blackout policies. They need to blackout Blue Jays and Twins games in Churchill? That's as dumb as when they'd blackout Rangers games when I was living in El Paso - 800 miles away. Worse, in fact.

Anthony said...

Other oddities:

Since when has El Paso been considered a Diamondbacks town?

Do the Pirates really have the biggest following in the western part of Virginia? Seems unlikely. I would think Braves or possibly Orioles/Nationals.

Anyway, cool post.

Jacob said...

The Pirates have West Virginia. When I went there for a ski trip with my church, it was ALL Pirates. Although I am a Braves fan from Birmingham, AL.

hi guys! Yes, I know the Sox are great in the Maritime Provinces. For the rest of Canada, I sort of assumed the Blue Jays would be the equipment of choice in places like Winnipeg and Edmonton.

justin bieber fans said...

Yeah, I agree with all that to a point. But there are other poor regions and communities in the country, and they didn't have a problem supporting "change." And then there's the paradox that poor people generally are not moving toward the Republicans, but these 8 poorest states are. And furthermore, the underdeveloped south didn't have a problem supporting change in 1992, or 1932, or 1980, for that matter... So I think what you say is right, but it's not the whole story.

nisioi_cosmin said...

There are actually plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice point to convey up. I provide the ideas above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where an important thing can be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Each boys and girls really feel the affect of just a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

Trust me, North Jersey is definitely not Mets territory. Yes we have some but they're usually people who moved off of L.I. or out of Queens. The majority are Yanks fans for sure.

I would be aware that as somebody who really doesn’t comment to blogs a lot (in actual fact, this may be my first put up), I don’t think the time period “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader.
