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 80’s Mets owned N.Y.
We may not have the numbers, but Mets fans are far better fans than Yankee fans…mostly because our crippling depression keeps us from leaving the house leading us to just sit around and watch Mets games all summer.
