How did we choose these particular teams? ON August 19, 2015, Forbes took a look at how baseball teams interact with their fans on social media, and which of these teams have the most loyal following on these platforms.

Some of the most active users on social media, especially when it comes to sports social media, are those that were born in the ’80s or in the early ’90’s, influenced heavily by the design aesthetic and culture of this time period. Besides, the ’80’s is always fun!
