WASHINGTON — We know the full extent of Natitude that is being shown around town, but with the Nationals participating in their first World Series, the rest of the country may be wondering how D.C.stacks up as a truly great baseball city.
The personal finance website WalletHub released a report that determined the best places to be a baseball fan.
WalletHub used 31 metrics to compare over 360 cities with at least one professional or college baseball team. Their metrics involved average ticket prices, fan engagement, stadium accessibility and more.
The report ranked D.C. as the 20th overall best city for baseball, trailing our neighbors in Baltimore who are ranked at 15th. But we did beat Annapolis, who was ranked as the 29th best baseball city.
New York, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Boston and Chicago came in as the top five best cities for baseball fans.
With the Nationals leading the World Series 1-0, and the entire city immersed in Nationals mania, we can only hope that D.C. will rank higher in future editions of the study.
