What about Little Rock makes you think it punches above it's weight? I believe it's underrated but it seems to be right there with other cities it's size, most notably to my city of Baton Rouge.

Yeah the city limits population isn't a meaningful indicator for sports teams (or much of anything else), because the limits are arbitrary for purposes of comparison to others. If all cities had equal land area in their limits then they'd be more useful, but since they vary widely and over time, it's not a useful metric. Pittsburgh's limits are unusually small due to historical reasons, and there are places there which are out of city limits that are less than 2 miles from the sports facilities (which are all near the center of the city). So a lot of what is officially considered suburbs or edge cities in Pittsburgh, would be easily within city limits of most other major cities.

Pittsburgh does still do a good job of supporting it's 3 major league teams, because it's Metro population has not dropped too much over the decades. In the early/mid 20th century when the sports leagues were forming and growing, Pittsburgh was a top 10 metro area.
