USA Today created power rankings for each of the 30 MLB teams' fanbases and the Phillies came in at fifth. The San Francisco Giants took the top spot following by the St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, and Detroit Tigers.
Well done, Phillies fans! This might come as a surprise to some fans as they are still dealing with the shock of looking at Citizens Bank Park and seeing some empty seats. Despite the empty seats, the Phillies are still doing well when it comes to attendance, although they have seen a gradual decrease over the last two years (their on-field performance has taken a bigger hit than the attendance).
Fans still show up. Fans still cheer. Fans still boo. And people still notice - look no further than USA Today.
