Average Cost To Attend A 2014 NHL Game By Team
Boston is 2nd to the Maple Leafs in cost of attending.

In any case, pro sports attendance in TV ratings is a pretty poor measure of the true popularity of the sport.
Football is not more popular in NYC than Memphis.
Hockey is not more popular in Tampa than it is in Ottawa

Although Baseball I think is recreationally played rather evenly across the country, AAA, AA, A leagues have similar attendance everywhere. If any sport is truly national, its Baseball.
Basketball not very popular in the deep south, Football isn't as popular in the Northeast, but Baseball is relatively evenly popular.

Huh, basketball and football are everywhere at the recreational, high school, and college levels. As a participation sport they are well above baseball.

How many college baseball programs compared to football and basketball.

I'll see pickup basketball and football games in many parks I visit. Not with baseball as the equipment needed makes it less of a pickup sport.

For that reason I think of Chicago mostly, which is what I voted. It just feels like the most quintessential baseball city.
we're in the midst of a four game city series between the Cubs and the Sox. It's not just the weather that is hot in Chicago.

3 of the 4 largest colleges in Massachusetts don't have football teams (BU, NEU, UML), they all have Baseball teams. In addition, Baseball as the minors, something football doesn't have so everyone is funneled through the College System (Hockey is somewhat similar to baseball here).
Youth Sports Participation Statistics and Trends:

Baseball>Football, and Baseball+Softball=Basketball as the most popular recreational sports in America.

Colorado doesn't have any Division 1 baseball programs so baseball isn't popular everywhere.
