In theory, a fan's reaction to a struggling Major League Baseball team might be, "They drive me to drink.''
The Texas Rangers have in recent years, of course, struggled a bit. But relative to the rest of the baseball world, they have not had a particularly ""boozy'' influence on North Texas fans.
According to a recent survey done by NJ Online Gambling, which canvassed more than 2,631 Major League Baseball fans over the age of 21, Rangers fans average 2.9 drinks per game.
That number ties the Rangers audience for the No. 21 spot in baseball.
A Rangers fan's "average spend'' was calculated to be $22, the lowest dollar total in all of MLB.
When it comes to MLB fans who drink the least during games, the Philadelphia Phillies rank last, with their fans consuming an average of 2.4 drinks per game.
And which fans in baseball drink the most and spend the most?
