The graphic is created by measuring how many likes each squads official Facebook page has in each county in the U.S. and Canada, to show that the Yankees are still very popular.

The social networking site also unveiled a map which showed the increase in fandom seen by the AL and NL champion Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants.
