St. Louis led the nation in ratings for locally-produced MLB telecasts this year. It also was No. 1 for the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby.

It isn’t going to be at the top of the heap for the World Series, what with the Cardinals not playing in the event, but the Gateway City is doing very well in the ratings thus far.

Through the first four games, St. Louis was drawing the second-best number in the country for a city outside the states of the teams that are competing in the Series — Pennsylvania and Texas.

Philadelphia led the way, with 25.2% of homes in the market with a TV tuning in. Houston was next, at 22.9. Then came two Texas locations — Austin (9.9) and San Antonio (9.2). In the broader scope, San Diego was fifth (7.9) with St. Louis next, at 7.5.

Overall, Fox is averaging just over 11.3 million viewers per game, up 4% over the same point last year (10.9 million). All ratings are according to Nielsen, which tabulates viewership.
