There's your reason... California has 24,921,614 more people yet only 60 more MLB players... don't be too proud about that stat...

"Oh shucks, we lost. We'll get 'em tomorrow." Passionate fans, they are not. And that's the bias-and it's a justified one.
And considering the pop. of California, is it any wonder that a large number of players originate from the state? How about throwing percentages out there?[/i]
Passionate fans, we are too. Maybe not in Oakland
Let's look at fan attendance shall we?
1. NY Yankees
2. LA Dodgers
3. St. Louis
4. LA Angels
5. San Francisco
6. Chicago Cubs
7. San Diego
Yeah, we aren't passionate ... we just aren't as notorious as Yankee, Red Sox, Cardinal, or Cub fans.
Good article Wrveres
