This area just got it's own baseball team, so for whatever it's worth..
I've found the sports/cities to be equally represented. Whatever/whomever is on TV gets the time.

We have 2 local newspapers, covering mainly Baltimore sports (Orioles, Ravens) but if they are out of town, they'll bump up either Philly or Pittsburgh. It all gets exciting if any of the three are in finals.

We get all of the TV stations, NBC/ABC/CBS/FOX have local affiliates, and additionals (ESPN etc.) so the games are usually featured.

There are a few die hard fans for every city/sport, but others who will take an interest if the team does well, or if they are following a particular athlete. The Baltimore facilities are only about an hour away, and very easy to get to, so if someone is getting "season tickets" they are most likely a fan of Baltimore sports.
