These Facebook data sports fan maps are all the rage lately. There’s already been a baseball one. And a pretty terrible hockey one. But this is the best one.

The New York Times, using data provided by Mark Zuckerberg’s box of your life, put together an interactive Major League Baseball fan map, viewable down to the zip code level. ZIP CODE. You can spend an hour looking at this thing and still feel like there’s more you want to uncover, so I’ll just point you in the direction of the map. But, if you want the quicky and dirty, here’s the Philly-New York dividing line:

Also interesting on this map is that the Northest-Bucks-Montco corridor – the areas north and west of the city – and South Jersey, contain the highest density of Phillies fans. Somewhere, Delco hangs its head.

The New York Times does a lot of this sort of thing, and it’s always pretty outstanding. They convey information in new and unique ways. Meanwhile, Philly.com is still using giant blocks of text so it looks like a newspaper online!
