About This Quiz

Every team in the majors has its own tradition. Some teams like the Red Sox and the Yankees have been around for many years and are among the most iconic sports franchises in the world. Teams like the Rays and Marlins might not have the same size of fan base, but at least they're lower pressure environments for the players. In 2018, Miami had a total of 810,000 fans attend games. That might sound like a lot, but it's 300,000 away from the team with the second-worst attendance, the Tampa Bay Rays. The Dodgers are king when it comes to attendance with over 3.8 million fans attending games last season.
