Online Casino Groups commissioned research to find out once and for all which baseball teams are America’s favorite and the results are pretty interesting!
Researchers analyzed Google search data for all 30 Major League Baseball teams to not only find out which team is most popular in each state, but which team is most popular overall in the United States.
You probably won't be surprised to learn that the New York Yankees are the most popular team in their home state with 1,123,000 monthly searches but the team is most popular in six other states and that gives the team the bragging rights to say that they are the most popular Major League Baseball team in America, ranking in an average of 3,651,310 monthly searches.
If you think that the six states in which the Yankees are most favored would be limited to those states that are closest to New York, you’d think wrong.
