Part of the thrill of going to see your home team play ball is the atmosphere in which you see them do it in.

For example, while I hail from the Toronto region, I was lucky enough to see the Jays play the Phillies earlier this summer, when Roy Halladay was back in town for the first time.

This game drew a fantastically vibrant, excited crowd of 46,000. I have to admit that—even while getting to see Doc pitch in the Rogers Center again—it wouldn't have been the same experience had the fans not shown up.

That is more or less what this is all about.

When the fans don't care enough about the team and whether it's winning or losing, the team shouldn't be there.

This isn't always the fault of the people in the city, as they sometimes are preoccupied with much more traditionally suitable sports.

I used attendance as a base factor for this list and went on to analyze the city itself and other sports teams who share the city, making it an inhospitable environment for baseball.

Without further adieu, here are 10 cities with unappreciated baseball teams and the need to have them moved.
