Major league baseball represents the highest level of
baseball competition in North America. It includes teams from the United States
and Canada. The major leagues are divided into the National League (NL) and the
American League (AL). The teams of each league are grouped into three divisions
within their league. In both the NL and AL, the divisions are called the East
Division, the Central Division, and the West Division.
The major league baseball season lasts from April (or late March) to October and
includes the regular season, the playoffs, and the World Series. Teams play 162
games during the regular season. The team with the most victories in each
division becomes the division winner and earns the right to compete in the
playoffs. The team with the best record in each league after the division
winners also is included in the playoffs as a wild-card team.
Each league holds a separate playoff, featuring their three division winners and
the wild-card team. These teams are paired and face each other in a series of
games. The teams that win the most games in a series earn the right to move on
to the next round of playoffs. The final series in the league playoffs
determines which team wins the pennant, or championship, of their league. The NL
and AL pennant winners meet in the World Series, and the winner of this series
becomes the major league world champion.
The major leagues also hold an annual competition called the All-Star Game,
which matches a team of NL players against a team of AL players. Baseball fans
select the starting players in the game. It takes place during the All-Star
break, a period in the middle of the regular season during which teams
temporarily rest from competition.
