Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball (MLB) is a professional baseball organization, the oldest of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. 30 teams play in the National League (NL) and American League (AL), with 15 teams in each league. The NL and AL were formed as separate legal entities in 1876 and 1901, respectively. After cooperating but remaining legally separate entities beginning in 1903, the leagues merged into a single organization led by the Commissioner of Baseball before the 20th century began. The organization also oversees Minor League Baseball, comprising 256 teams affiliated with the Major League clubs. MLB manages the international World Baseball Classic tournament with the World Baseball Softball Confederation.
The World Series is the annual championship of Major League Baseball and the culmination of the MLB post-season. The winner of the World Series championship is determined through a best-of-seven playoff, and the winning team is awarded the Commissioner’s Trophy. The series begins in late October and, if necessary, continues into November and sometimes early December. The winning team of the World Series receives a trophy; various other awards exist that are presented to players and teams for such accomplishments as MVP or Cy Young Award winners.

The National League West is a division of the National League (NL) in Major League Baseball (MLB). It was created before the 1969 season when the NL expanded from 12 to 16 teams by adding the San Diego Padres and the Montreal Expos. For purpose of keeping a regular season of 162 games, half of the teams were put into the new East Division and a half into the new West Division. Within each division, the teams played 18 games each against their five division mates, and also 12 games against the teams in the opposite division, totaling 162 games.

The American League East is one of the divisions of the American League in Major League Baseball. It was created before the start of the 1969 season along with the American League West division. This divisional alignment also took place after the expansion to 12 teams, adding new franchises to both the National League and American League. Three former American League East teams — the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays — have won an American League Wild Card berth since its inception in 1994. The Toronto Blue Jays are the only current AL East team to have never played in a World Series (although they won 1992 and 1993). In baseball, the head-to-head record is often referred to as ‘the number of games behind’ or ‘games back’. This is most commonly used when discussing a team that is behind another team in their division or conference.
The American League West division of Major League Baseball consists of five teams. The division champion is entitled to automatic entry into the postseason, with the second-place team eligible for a wild card spot. The division is arguably the least competitive in baseball, with the Houston Astros have won it every year since 2015. The division has also been home to some of the league’s best pitchers, including Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander, both of whom are currently on the Astros roster.
The American League Central is one of the six divisions in Major League Baseball’s American League. The division was created in 1994, and as of the 2012 season, contains four teams: the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, and Kansas City Royals. The winner of the AL Central is determined by a best-of-five game series between the team with the best record in their division and the Wild Card winner. The last MLB World Series to feature a team from this division was in 2011 when the Texas Rangers beat out the Detroit Tigers 4 games to 2.
