After the end of the regular season, most baseball fans will put away their team allegiance and root for a play-off team. With each subsequent round of the play-offs teams are eliminated and the fans narrow their focus until ultimately they are left rooting for the World Series regardless of who is playing in it.
Once the final out is recorded, fans will again flock to their favorite teams as we enter the off-season. For most of the country the fall and early winter is spent huddled somewhere warm longing for baseball season to begin again.
