The Los Angeles area calls two baseball teams home.

The Los Angeles area calls two baseball teams home.

Spring Training is right around the corner, and if you are a baseball fan who is looking to relocate, you may want to find cities that cater to your love of  pitchers and catchers. Baseball can be found far and wide, but there are some specific cities that house cathedrals of the game. It may be a good idea to consider a city where baseball is popular when planning where your moving containers will go.

New York City
If there is a place to start when it comes to baseball cities, it is likely New York City. The megalopolis is home to two members of Major League Baseball, the Yankees and the Mets. The Yankees are the most successful baseball team in the league with 27 World Series titles, while their crosstown rivals have two in their cabinet. The rivalry between the two teams is heated, and is usually played out in the Subway Series each summer. The Yankees play in Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, while the Mets play at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens.

There may only be one baseball team in Boston, but no matter where you go in the city, reminders are not far away. The Red Sox call Fenway Park home, and it is located in the Kenmore section of the city. The stadium is the oldest in the league, and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. You don't have to be in Fenway to appreciate the Sox, as fans file into bars and restaurants across New England to see the team play throughout the season.

Another city that is the home to two teams is Chicago. The Cubs play in Wrigley Field, on the North Side of the city, while the White Sox play in the South Side. The fans of both teams are quite passionate about their own superiority in the city, and this has carried on for years. Other than a White Sox World Series win in 2005, neither team had won the trophy since the early part of the 20th century. Despite this, there may not be a city that is more passionate about baseball in the country.

San Francisco Bay Area
Two cities are in the bay area, San Francisco and Oakland. The two cities are home to the Giants, located in San Francisco, and the Athletics, in Oakland. The Giants play in AT&T Park, located right on the bay, while the Athletics play at O.co Coliseum. Beyond the Yankees' domination carrying New York City, a championship pedigree split between two teams may not be matched by anyone but in the bay area. The Athletics have nine titles to their name, with the last one in 1989. The Giants have seven, with the latest one occurring in October. While both teams have a long history of shifting around the country, they have made Northern California their home for years, and there are plenty of dedicated fans in these cities.

Los Angeles
There is one team in Los Angeles, but there is also another team right down the road in Anaheim. This makes for another great baseball atmosphere. The Dodgers play in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, while the Angels play in Angel Stadium of Anaheim. There is plenty of history between these two teams, but the success has been balanced a bit more toward the blue part of the Los Angeles area. The Dodgers have six titles to the Angels one. Baseball is a significant part of the area, and both teams are well-supported.
