With the World Series in full swing, this new graphic by designer Russ Maschmeyer comes in the nick of time for solving heated team rivalries. Using his personally invented (and quite complex) Die Hard Fan Index (DHI), Maschmeyer has figured out just how strongly baseball fans support their team. To come up with a meaningful number, the index takes into account ticket prices compared to income earned, attendance to stadium capacity and home losses to home games. How did the Rangers and Cardinals fair on this creative comparison? Check out the full sized graphic.
