About MLB

MLB stands for Major League Baseball, which is the highest level of professional baseball in the United States and Canada. The league consists of 30 teams (29 in the US and 1 in Canada), divided into two leagues: the American League (AL) and the National League (NL).

The MLB season typically runs from late March or early April to late September or early October, with the postseason (including the World Series) taking place in October and November. The World Series is the championship series of MLB, and is played between the winners of the AL and NL.

MLB is highly regarded for its rich history and tradition, as well as for the high level of skill and athleticism displayed by its players. The league has produced many iconic players and moments over the years, and has played an important role in the cultural fabric of the United States and Canada.

The rules of MLB differ slightly from those of other baseball leagues around the world, with some notable differences including the use of the designated hitter (a player who only hits, and does not play defense) in the American League, and the absence of a tiebreaker rule in the regular season.

Overall, MLB is an exciting and highly regarded professional sports league that has captured the imagination of fans and players around the world. It is a key part of the cultural and sporting landscape of the United States and Canada, and is widely regarded as one of the most popular and beloved sports leagues in North America.
