There is no doubt that every sports team has their fair share of die-hard fans.

Chatsports.com lists what they believe to be the 4 Major League Baseball fan bases with the most class.
CHECK OUT THE TEAMS BELOW:
Kansas City Royals
Royals fans have been shoved aside over and over while national TV analysts celebrate Cardinals fans as the ‘best in baseball’ (*cough* Joe Buck *cough*), and that’s a crying shame. Kansas City fans are some of the most passionate, quirky loyalists you’ll find in any sports city across any country. You’re likely to face some razzing as an open-hearted opposing fan in the stands, but it is usually followed by a pat on the back and some self-deprecating humor when things turn sour on the home team. Great food (mmmm, BBQ), nice people and a in-stands experience that will make any fan’s baseball heart soar. This is what the game is all about.
When you come in contact with a die-hard, long-suffering Buccos fan, you’re usually in for a treat. Pittsburgh fans are some of the most knowledgable in the game, and they love to both share and listen to stories about the game they love. There’s 133 years of history behind the Pirates organization, reaching all the way back to their 1882 inception as the Pittsburgh Alleghenys. Pirates fans tend to embrace this history, and they’re more than happy to bring friendly outsiders in on the fun. Want to watch a game with some of the most down-to-earth people around? Take a trip to PNC.
New York Yankees
Yankees fans get a bum rap. Championship after championship has bred stereotype after stereotype, casting Bronx Bombers loyalists in an unfair light more often that not. Let’s stop mistaking an unbridled love of the game for rudeness. Boasting the most diverse array of cultures and backgrounds among any and all fan bases in North America, Yankees fans turn the history of baseball and the millions of lives its impacted into something palpable to be experienced every night at the Stadium. If you love baseball and have an open heart, you will be accepted. You’ll need to be able to laugh at yourself, but you’ll also be given a firsthand look into perhaps the most unique sports subculture in American history.
It’s just a different experience at Wrigley. The best of Cubs fans are both funny and willing to laugh at themselves and the team’s decades of journeying through the baseball wilderness. Watching Chicago fans’ faces as they live and die on every pitch is a sight to behold, and they tend to respect those who wear their hearts on their sleeves and root with their whole beings. It’s the Friendly Confines for a reason, folks. It’s one of the nicest and most unique places to sit back, relax and take in a pure slice of Americana.
