DerekJeter650

As the baseball season approaches this weekend (though the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks have already opened their seasons in Australia), the New York Yankees are both the most liked and talked-about team on Facebook, according to Mediabistro’s PageData.

The Yankees’ Facebook page has a PTAT value of more than 385,000. Also highly discussed on Facebook are the Dodgers and the Cincinnati Reds. Although the Reds don’t yet have 1 million fans on Facebook, the chatter about that page is still third in baseball — ranking just higher than the Boston Red Sox, who have 4.4 million Facebook fans.
