ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – You might have heard of Cardinals supporters being the "Best Fans in Baseball." It's a statement that Nielsen data might just back up… if you consider being a great fan watching the team on TV.

The organization's Year in Sports Media Report found that St. Louis Cardinals fans were the top local fan base when it comes to the percent of the population that watched, attended or listened to the team in the past 12 months.

A whopping 76 percent of St. Louisans watched the Cardinals on TV last year, destroying No. 2 Cincinnati, which supported the Reds a comparatively paltry 69 percent of the time.

St. Louisans also love hockey, with the Blues coming in as the fifth best local fanbase.
