Life in the Great MidwestChicago Cubs and White Sox Are the Least Popular MLB Teams in Illinois? Marc-Louis Paprzyca March 31, 2014 Mockery 40 Comments "Chicago's First Interactive Message Board For Fans"Prev postNext post Chicago Sports News – Facebook recently released a graphic depicting the fans of Major League Baseball teams by county. Results were used from MLB team “likes” on their official Facebook pages. Take a look but you may be shocked by the results. MLB Fandom Don’t Be Deceived The Chicago White Sox only won in three counties in the State of Illinois, though it isn’t all bad news. Cook County is the most densely populated county in the state and second in the country behind Los Angeles County. Chicago Cubs fans make up the rest of the top half of the state but it is the bottom half that is the most disturbing. More than half of Illinois residents are St. Louis Cardinals fans! Probably not, we have to remember that most of those are rural areas and there might only be one computer in some of those counties. Isn’t it fun how graphs like this can really skew how you look at things? ___________ Sources: NBC Chicago; Wikipedia Photos: NBC Chicago; Pinterest Prev postNext post Note: This website contains an assortment of articles written by Chicago fans with their own opinion, each reflecting their own point of view.
