A couple months back, Forbes released their annual list of NBA franchise valuations and for the first time in history, every pro basketball team valued over $1 billion. As far as the NFL goes, all but five of the NFL’s 32 teams are worth at least $2 billion (Cowboys most valuable at $4.8 billion), with the Buffalo Bills being the least valuable at $1.6 billion.

Forbes has recently released its values for Major League Baseball and all 30 teams but one is valued over $1 billion. Unsurprisingly, the Yankees are the most valuable franchise in the game, valued at $4 billion and raking in a league-best $619 million in revenue last season. Derek Jeter used to be a part of that organization, but is now an executive of the Miami Marlins, who are tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for last in baseball with $219 million in revenue.

Without further ado, here is the complete list of the most valuable MLB franchises.
