What is Major League Baseball (MLB)?
Major League Baseball is the top level of baseball in North America (and worldwide.) There are 30 MLB teams - 29 based in the USA and one in Canada - and those teams are split into two leagues - the American League and the National League - each with an East, Central, and West division.
'America's Pastime' has been around forever. You can trace the American League back to 1901, while the National League is 25 years older than that. Rules have changed through the years - the designated hitter was added to increase offense, and the pitching mound height has continually changed to add balance - but the game is essentially the same now as it was in the first World Series - the series where the winners of each league face of - in 1903.
The MLB Experience
Baseball can be a drag to watch on TV. The recent pitch clock implementation to speed up the game was smart, but games can still go on (theoretically) forever with extra innings until a game is one.
The in-stadium experience, however, is a different animal. There is nothing like bleacher seats on a summer's day with a hot dog in one hand and a cold beer in the other to evoke a sense of nostalgia. The satisfying thud of the bat on the ball, the smell of freshly cut grass, and the wacky promotions between innings (we all remember The Freeze in Atlanta, right?) are slices of pure Americana. This is the perfect sport for a family outing, with ticket prices being far more reasonable than prices of other Big Four sporting matches.
