With most Major League Baseball teams throwing the first pitches of their 2014 seasons Monday, the Facebook Data Science Team took a county-by-county look across the U.S. at which teams have the most likes.
As illustrated in the map above, the social network found that:
- The New York Yankees had the most likes in the most counties.
- The New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, and Oakland Athletics did not top a single U.S. county in terms of likes.
- Louisiana and Nebraska — neither of which is home to an MLB club — were the most divided states.
