The relative popularity of sports is often measured in terms of how many people watch the game and/ or are fans of it and of course, how many Americans play the various sports. (See the Related Question to the right for relative popularity of pro sports.)
Through most of the 20th century, the big four have been considered baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. They were usually in that order, but there are many regional and local differences across the US.
There are football schools, basketball states, hockey towns, etc. Baseball was called the national pastime. Soccer has become increasingly popular in the US. It is, by far, the most popular sport played (and watched) around the world. For Americans in the 1980s and 1990s it was considered something young kids played. But more and more older children and adults are playing the game. Golf, bowling and tennis are very popular.
