Some guy has made a really cool map of “The United Countries of Baseball.” I may quibble with a few of the borders, but he’s obviously put a lot of thought into it. Fun stuff.
what do you think of the reds storming to yankee land and stealing joba by throwing a bag over his head and running away?
The Reds get a lot more love than that in Indiana, in the part of the state south of Muncie and east of Indianapolis. They beat out the Cubs and Cards in popularity in that area.
They get more love in southwest Virginia, too. Still a cool map, though.
I agree with the above comments about Indiana. The city of Indianapolis is probably 40% reds, 40% cubs, and 20% cards. Def. not 50/50 cards, cubs like is represented. I also think the VA/WVA is a little skewed too. People on other sites have been complaining about this map since NIke put it out early this spring.
That’s really neat! I think both the Rangers and Rays have far more “territory” than they should though. Just goes to show you don’t have to get things perfect when you have a good idea. 🙂
Is the map based on he geography of each team’s radio franchises? If not, tht would also be an interesting map.
As I recall, a station in Idaho carries Cubs games. Weird.
Indy is probably more Cubs than Reds, but I agree that the southeastern quadrant of Indiana is DEFINITELY Reds territory.
That map has been around for a while, and I’ve seen it on multiple forums. As cool as it is, it’s highly inaccurate, according to many fans. I gotta give the creator credit for making such a cool map, though.
