Default Baseball Fans

I don't think anyone is allowed to just pick a team and become a fan.

Do you root for the team that is closest to where you live now ?
Do you root for the team that plays closest to where you were born ?
Do you root for the team closest to where you were born at the time of birth ? That team also won the World Series the year I was born.

People ask, where are you from, and that is always a difficult question. My parents decided to raise me somewhere but I chose to live somewhere else.
There are no teams in the state I live in now so I am lost in where to place my loyalty.

I'm a fan of the Indians. They're close to home.

Born and raised a Red Sox fan. Moved out of Boston in '94 but my heart will always be with my Beantown teams...

I haven't cared for baseball since the last strike. The only entertainment I get out of it is watching the Mets collapse at the end of every season and the agony of my Boston and Cape Cod friends when the Yankees beat the Sox.

I do enjoy watching the nieces play a little league game now and then

I'm a Marlins fan cause I was born and raised in Miami and root for all the Miami teams even when they are having a crappy year, but of course living in Iowa, I don't see too many games.

I'm ashamed to put this up after you, since my team struck out 15 times against you lol. I'm not a big baseball fan, but I'll take the 'Devil' Rays since they're my home team.
