If baseball teams were ranked based on their hometown housing markets, then the closest opening day matchup Monday is the Mets and the Nats.

The National Association of Realtors breaks down home prices and price gains in the 16 cities playing baseball today, and it says based on median home-price data, New York’s $390,000 median sales price is the closest to its opening day foe, the Washington Nationals, with a hometown median price of $372,800.

The biggest difference is San Francisco and Phoenix, at $742,900 versus $200,300.

If the win were to go to the team with the biggest hometown improvement, that would be Denver, with a year-over-year increase of 12.7 percent.

Denver’s opening day opponent is also among the biggest home value gainers. Home prices in Milwaukee have gained 8.6 percent in the past year.

Here’s the NAR’s opening day housing scoreboard, below:
