Yup - baseball is much more tribal (like the NHL).

The numbers are a bit dated now ('09-'10) - but these are the last comprehensive MLB/NBA/NHL RSN numbers we've seen:

MLB was ahead of the NBA in every shared market except LA (Lakers), Cleveland (LeBron), and DC(*) (well, the Nats just basically sucked) - in most markets significantly ahead.

(*) If you include the Orioles broadcast on the same RSN, they blow away the NBA.
