Interactive Map: Where Do Sports Stars Call Home?

Posted in: I'm Moving, Long Distance Moving

If you’ve ever seen an episode of MTV’s Cribs, you know that American sports stars live large. These superstar athletes are paid well for their endeavors on the field, track or ice rink (not to mention high-paying endorsement deals).

Curiosity drove us to uncover where famous sports stars currently live, versus where they were born. Did some sports legends retire back to their hometown? Is there a particular city or state that is churning out legends? 

We’ve collected data on where 100 famous American athletes were born and where they live right now. We then compiled the information into this interactive map for your enjoyment. You can also check out our infographic here!

To Use: The map defaults to show the sports star’s hometowns and current places of residence. Hover over the blue dots to see which sports star it represents, hover over the orange ones to see whose current home it represents. You can filter the results by sport or see only current homes or hometowns. Below the map, you will see a list of all of the featured athletes. Choose one to see only their location listed on the map. To reset any filter, just click the button again.
