Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Angels fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
Baseball fans were asked of the four League Championship Series teams, which team had the worst fans, and the results were very conclusive.
Despite the Cardinals winning multiple World Series since the turn of the century, the Astros recently having a run of success, and the Nationals brashness, over 60% of voters stated that the Yankees were the team with the “worst” fans. Even looking on Twitter, there are a lot of Yankees fans who complain at an excessive rate. There is a potential threat of things being thrown on the field:
