The GIS assumes that you will root for the team nearest you. Thus, it draws market areas based solely on the distance to the nearest baseball team. In real life, however, other factors can affect or distort the market area so that the distance is not equally divided between two central places. These factors can include transportation connections, physical terrain, communication links, state and national boundaries, and other cultural-historical ties. Give 2 examples of two parts of the country where team allegiances do not match those drawn by the GIS. In other words, find at least 2 examples from these maps of baseball market areas that are not accurate. For each case, discuss what factors "override" distance and cause market areas to be distorted.
