A Facebook map of baseball fandom

OpeningDay650

As Major League Baseball prepares for another Opening Day (though the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks have already played a few games), Facebook released a map showing users’ baseball allegiances, measured in terms of likes on each teams’ Facebook page.

The largest swaths of the U.S. map are taken up by the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves and Texas Rangers. Facebook notes that there’s not a single county in America where most Facebook users like the Oakland Athletics, New York Mets or Toronto Blue Jays.

Want to find out who most of the Facebook users in your county root for? Click below to see the map.
