CINCINNATI -- The 2016 Reds season may have left fans licking their wounds, but that didn't stop Cincinnati from being named as the seventh best city in America for baseball fans by personal finance website WalletHub in rankings released Tuesday.  

As the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians face off in the World Series on Tuesday, WalletHub compared the 361 largest U.S. cities with at least one college or professional baseball team to determine the best places to be a fan of America’s second-most followed sport. They looked at 25 key metrics ranging from “performance level of team(s)” to “average ticket price” to “stadium accessibility.”

Great American Ball Park got a special shoutout as the most accessible major league baseball stadium in America. Cincinnati also drew special mention in the rankings for having the fourth cheapest average ticket price for major league games and the fifth most engaged major league fans.

The top cities for baseball fans were New York City, St. Louis and Los Angeles. Cleveland also cracked the top 20 at No. 14. Dayton, Ohio, placed at No. 35, while Louisville came in at No. 37.
