STUDY: Professional Baseball Exists Outside of Boston, New York

Sunday, June 28, 2009

A ten year study performed by the North American Institute of Professional Sports Franchise Research (NAIPSFR) was released today, confirming the exsistence of professional baseball teams outside of Boston and New York. Lead NAIPSFR researcher Ian Schlecker was very excited with the findings. "It's great for other areas of North America to be able to root for an area professional baseball team. Watching the Yankees and Red Sox 162 times a year was becoming a little boring." Highlights of the report include the following:

  • 28 Major League Baseball teams exist in addition to the Yankees and Red Sox
  • Minor League Baseball consists of hundreds of teams in several leagues throughout North America
  • ESPN has the ability to report non-New York and non-Boston baseball topics
  • Top players such as Albert Pujols and Joe Mauer don't even play in New York or Boston

The NAIPSFR is exploring future research studies including:

  • Pro golfers besides Tiger?
  • Did the Cavaliers think it was 2003 when they traded for Shaq?
  • Should a stadium beer really cost $8?
