Which state produces the most pro athletes?


Have you ever wondered which state produces the most professional athletes? Well, thanks to an awesome infographic from AreaVibes, we now know the answer.

Not only did the data gather which states produce the most athletes, it pinpointed the top cities in the country.

On a statewide video, you may be surprised to know that Washington D.C. leads the way. As for the city with the most talent, it is far and away Chicago, producing the most NFL, NBA and MLB players.

States like Arizona, Colorado and Alaska aren’t quite as lucky.

Where does your home state rank when it comes to producing top talent? How about your city?

A full look at the data from AreaVibes can be seen below:
