Wallethub looked at 11 key metrics to rank the cities, including number of championships won, average ticket prices and fan friendliness and engagement (number of social media followers).

St. Louis also ranked No. 1 in both teams & performance rank and costs & fan engagement. Kansas City came it at No. 27 and No. 19 respectively.

“Get used to seeing more Americans sporting baseball fan gear this summer,” Richie Bernardo of Wallethub stated. “If 2014’s any indication — Major League Baseball witnessed its seventh biggest attendance of all time this past September — we may see yet another record-breaking baseball season in 2015.”
