Yeah, my mother as a single parent put in baseball @5yrs old because it was all she could afford. I didn't play organized hockey until I was 9. It's also just a lot easier, every school has basketball courts, many parks have courts. Join a gym there's usually basketball courts. And the demographics in urban cities continue to become more diverse which reflects what sports are being played.
