American League or National League Fan?

New, 108 comments

In the era of interleague play, this may not make much of a difference. But when I was growing up in the late 70s and early 80s, it was common for a person to be a National League Fan, or an American League Fan, in addition to whatever specific team you supported.

I don't know if that is true for the younger generation, but the question popped in my head this afternoon and I'm interested in the answer. So, here's the query. Are you a fan of a specific league more than the other? Or are you just a general Major League Baseball fan?

I have always been more of an American League fan, since the teams I had the most exposure to in 1977-1979, when my basic baseball neural circuitry was laid down, were the Twins and the Royals.
