Harrisburg/Hershey, home to Nationals & Capitals farm teams, #1 minor league market

Harrisburg, Hershey have best fans, sports publication declares – The Fan Box, Patriot-News
According to Sports Business Journal, Pennsylvania’s capital region is the leading minor league market in the country. Two Washington teams, the Nationals and Capitals have minor league teams there, the Harrisburg Senators and Hershey Bears. My in-laws live up that way and I have a few friends there too. In 2006 (I think) I went with my father-in-law to a Senators game — we ran into Fritz and his father. I have not been to a Hershey Bears game yet, but I am sure I will go sometime, they have a great atmosphere there.

Other Nationals affiliates:

27. Woodbridge, Va., Potomac Nationals (A)
76. Hagerstown, Md., Hagerstown Sun (A)
159. Syracuse, N.Y., Syracuse Chiefs, (AAA)
122. Burlington, Vt., Vermont Lake Monsters (A)

Charleston, S.C., home of the Capitals ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays, came in 141.

Richmond, Va. came in dead last.
