I grew up in New England so I'll have to say Red Sox. That was my entire life as a kid up until they started winning regularly and it got a little boring. But I remember watching all 162 games every single year either at Fenway or on TV and most of my family and friends did the same thing. You know it's a baseball crazy area when you are watching a West coast game that starts at 10pm on a Tuesday night in September when both teams are way out of the play off race.

As a non bias baseball fan I would say that St Louis is the only place that comes close. Cards fans I have met are all just as passionate and knowledgable about all of the nuances of the game and they still hold Stan the Man in the same reverence was Sox fans hold The Splendid Splinter

Cincinnati is the baseball capital of the world, everyone should know this by now.

I never no idea people because I live in Miami Beach. People pretend like baseball does not exist here. I have yet to found anybody young under 30 that likes the sport other than me. I watch games with a 70 year old co worker ha.

Probably not Chicago.

Over here, people - especially the young generations - are more interested in basketball.

Hockey is obviously big, mostly due to bandwagon fans though.

Baseball isn't as big as it used to be, although it has started growing again due to the success of the Cubs.

Football is probably at the bottom. But all 4 are still relatively popular. Chicago is a big sports town..

St Louis, hands down. Too many teams in Chicago, New York and Boston to divide loyalty amongst the fan base. St Louis always had a baseball team and now only have the Cards and the Blues, as the Rams have gone to LA.

St Louis, Boston, Baltimore & Cincinnati are the biggest baseball towns in the country, where the sport is woven into the fabric of the city and they follow the team closely win or lose.
