Pirates fans among the least fit in MLB

Baseball fans can be quick to judge the athletic abilities and physical fitness of players on the field, but how well does their own physical fitness stack up?

USBets recently surveyed 2,000 MLB fans to ask them all about their physical fitness to determine which MLB fanbases are the most and least physically fit.

Rankings were based off several factors including body mass index, frequency of exercise, how physically active they are throughout the day, if they can run a mile and how many push-ups and sit-ups they can perform.


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates fans are the 2nd least physically fit MLB fans.
  • Pirates fans play the 9th most recreational sports with 63% of Pirates fans reporting that they play a recreational sport at least once per month.
  • Pirates fans were joined by the Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Royals, Tampa Bay Rays and the Houston Astros in the top five least physically fit MLB fans.
  • The top 5 fittest MLB fanbases: 1. Los Angeles Angels 2. Arizona Diamondbacks 3. Milwaukee Brewers 4. Colorado Rockies 5. San Diego Padres.
