Leagues Governing Bodies

          MLB maintains the second largest fan base of the four     major pro leagues in both the U.S. and Canada according to a     new Fox Sports/The Marment Group survey.  The following     survey was conducted of 1,000 respondents in the US and     Canada (excluding Quebec) from November 3-24.  Respondents     were asked to rank their interest in the leagues on a scale     of 1 to 5, where 1 was "not at all interested" and 5 was     "extremely interested."  Fans were labeled as those with     interest of 3 or greater in each sport (TMG/Fox):
