Maptitude Featured Map Infographic:
Closest Major League Baseball Park to Where You Live

Maptitude is the best mapping software for business intelligence! Are you planning on taking a road trip this Summer that includes a baseball game? This month's featured map shows North America divided into territories based on the shortest drive-time to a Major League Baseball park. We have also calculated the portion of the U.S. population that lives within each area. Our analysis with Maptitude included some interesting results for baseball fans:

  • Baseball fans in Iowa may have the toughest choice in choosing their team alliance. While the state has no team of its own, six different teams lay claim to portions of the state to which they are closest (Twins, Royals, Cardinals, White Sox, Cubs, and Brewers).
  • While New York is home to two MLB teams, your location in the state will determine which of seven different teams (Mets, Yankees, Blue Jays, Phillies, Pirates, Indians, and Red Sox) is closest.
  • Thanks to the 2½-hour Lake Express Ferry, baseball fans in Grand Rapids, Michigan can get to a Brewers game in less time than it takes to drive to see their home state Detroit Tigers.
  • While Illinois may be home to two teams, more than half of the state is closer to Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.
  • Portions of 13 states and one Canadian province are closest to Coors Field in Denver, Colorado.
  • The smallest territory by area belongs to the New York Mets, where only people living on Long Island can claim Citi Field as their closest park.
  • 31.3 million Americans (nearly 1/10 of the entire population) live closest to Suntrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves.
  • Even though the Blue Jays play in Canada, their territory contains 3.2 million people who live in western New York, which exceeds the San Francisco Giants territory at only 2.7 million people.

The USA Maptitude Country Package includes a point landmark database that includes thousands of points-of-interest, including baseball parks, stadia, and sports complexes.
