I can’t think of any sport that has much of a regional difference in the USA. Perhaps ice hockey, but teams have been successful in the south as well.

I’d say the main difference in the South is that there are so many transplants that come from colder weather climates and often keep their old team loyalties. I’d say that goes double for the two Florida teams.

While it’s true many people move to places like NYC and Chicago, the demographics are a bit different since you’re often dealing with recent college graduates moving to the big city. Even for me, lifelong baseball fan, my interest definitely waned in my early 20s as I was more interested in nightlife and meeting other singles than I was in who’s pitching today.
