Rangers Have Most Loyal Fans in MLB

A fanatic FrontBurnervian points us to this article, wherein it is revealed that Rangers fans love their team more than any other fans in baseball. How’d they determine that?

Through the use of multiple regression analysis, we determined how quickly fans supported the team when they started winning and how quickly they dissipated once performance slumped. The faster that fans boosted attendance and the more hastily they abandoned poor performance indicated fans who were less loyal.

That’s how.

    I have always enjoyed watching passionate and powerful (albeit HGH supported in the 90s) Rangers offenses that get outdone by pitchers who just don’t have it. Ever.
