A Guide to All 30 Teams in Major League Baseball

Who do you root for? Are you a die-hard Yankees fan who can’t stand the Red Sox? Maybe you were born and raised in Kansas City and bleed royal blue? Perhaps you don’t have a favorite team and are just a fan of watching Major League Baseball.

Either way, you will enjoy this page directing you through all 30 teams in the Big Leagues. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about the American League or the National League — we are going to explain everything.

Our baseball gurus arranged this catalog of all the teams in MLB in an organized fashion. You will learn things like which five teams make up each of the six divisions and what all the stadiums are called.

Facts about when a team entered the league and when they last reached and won a World Series will be part of this guide. Before we break into the fifteen teams in each league, let’s explain the two leagues so you have a better foundation for understanding how the league is set up.

The Two Leagues

Major League Baseball is broken up into two leagues — the American League (AL) and the National League (NL). Each League is comprised of fifteen teams, making up the thirty total teams in MLB.

The biggest difference between how the game is played is the use of the designated hitter in the American League. In the National League, the nine players in the field are the same nine players that make up the batting order.

In contrast, the American League replaces the pitcher in the batting lineup with a designated hitter (DH), or a player that only has to bat and not play defense in the field.

In a nutshell, the pitchers bat in the NL. In the AL, they don’t.

Major League Baseball sets up their schedule in a unique, but systematic way. Each team will play the same number of games versus divisional and league opposition, for a total of 162 games.

Let’s take the New York Yankees as an example. In 2017, as part of the American League East, the Yankees played each of their four divisional opponents nineteen times, for a total of seventy-six divisional games. They played sixty-six games against the AL Central and AL West teams.

They played their remaining twenty games against National League competition (Interleague Play). The other twenty-nine teams in Major League Baseball experienced similar schedules. The easiest way to think about it is this.

Each team plays seventy-six divisional games, sixty-six league games, and twenty interleague games.

There is an East, Central, and West division in each league. The sections below tell you which teams are in which leagues, as well as which division they are in. Let’s start with the with the fifteen teams vying to win the American League pennant.

The American League

The fifteen teams in the American League are split up into three distinct divisions, with five teams in each. The teams are arranged in their respective divisions based primarily on their geographical location. Teams in each division compete against each other most often, hence why the divisions are grouped in the fashion they are.

Most games are played without days off, so the amount of travel necessary can be demanding. Playing a high percentage of games against teams from reasonably close regions is designed to help make that travel easier.

Let’s start by looking at the how the American League shakes out. You will see how the makeup of each division is based where teams are physically located.

AL East

The American League has been an extremely competitive division for quite some time. We almost always see two teams from the division in the postseason, as the team with the second-best record is generally enough to win a Wild Card berth.

In 2016, we actually saw three teams from the AL East make the playoffs. The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles got in via the Wild Card, and the Boston Red Sox won the division. As you will see below, the teams in the AL East are not afraid to spend money and take chances.

Of course, back in the day, Babe Ruth was sold from the Red Sox to the Yankees for cash — a deal that Boston fans think has haunted the city ever since.

We have seen David Price pitch great for Tampa Bay before being rented out to Toronto for a second-half push during the 2015 season. Then he signed a contract to play in Boston. Anything can happen in the AL East. Learn more about the five teams below.

Famous Players

The Orioles have been based in Baltimore since the 1954 season. As one of the original eight teams in the American League in 1901, this franchise had previously been known as the St. Louis Browns. That lasted until 1953, when the team was purchased by a group of businessmen based out of Baltimore.

Their first home once they arrived outside the nation’s capital was Memorial Stadium. Since 1992, the Orioles have played their home games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, which holds nearly 46,000 spectators.

They have won nine AL East titles and seven American League Pennants. They have three World Series titles to their name, with their most recent coming in 1983. Cal Ripken Jr. may be their most notable star in Cooperstown, but don’t forget that Hall of Famer Brooks “the Human Vacuum Cleaner” Robinson played his entire twenty-three-year career in Baltimore.

Nothing comes easy for the Oriole’s franchise, as they have to deal with the next two divisional juggernauts on a routine basis.

As one of the first eight charter franchises in the American League, the beginning of the Boston Red Sox dates all the way back to 1901. Fenway Park opened in 1912 and the “Bo’ Sox” have been playing their home games there ever since. Many people’s bucket list items include attending a game at the oldest stadium in the big leagues. Fenway Park is that special.

The team has had some exceptional players, none better than outfielder Ted Williams. “Teddy Ballgame” played his entire nineteen years in a Boston uniform and is still considered one of the three greatest hitters of all time. His #9 jersey will never be worn again by a Red Sox player.

Boston has won eight World Series, with a pretty huge gap between numbers five and six. After storming out of the gate and winning five World Series from 1903-1918, Red Sox nation had to painstakingly wait eighty-six more years before tasting the glory again in 2004.

The rivalry between Boston and the New York Yankees is as storied as any rival in all of the major sports. Think about the “Babe Ruth sale” at the end of 1919.

How about their historic seven-game American League Championship Series (ALCS) in 2004 that featured “the bloody sock game”? These teams have been battling each other for over 100 years, and should continue for years to come.

The New York Yankees are undoubtedly the most historic franchise in the history of Major League Baseball. Part of the original eight teams in the AL, the team moved from Baltimore to New York in 1903 after just two seasons.

The twenty-seven World Series victories between 1923 and 2009 are sixteen more than any other franchise in the league. Saying the “Yanks” have been the most successful franchise in the sport would be an understatement. The twenty-seven rings aren’t the only record the team has.

The twenty-four inductees into Cooperstown are also tops in the entire League, further solidifying this organization’s place on the totem pole of the game. Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, and Lou Gehrig are just a few of the legends that never played in a game without wearing the navy pinstripes.

The “Bronx Bombers” have had many well-known managers over time, including current MLB chief officer Joe Torre. They hired former player Aaron Boone after the 2017 season to replace another former player who was at the helm, Joe Girardi.

Regardless of who is managing or playing for the Yankees, it is pretty clear they have the money to spend and therefore should be in a position to contend for a division title year in and year out.

Tampa Bay Rays

Out of the five teams in the AL East division, the Tampa Bay Rays definitely play in the best climate. The Rays were one of two teams (Arizona Diamondbacks) to be added to the league in 1998, the last time Major League Baseball has added any expansion teams.

Due to being relatively new to the league, the team has experienced little success when talking about winning pennants. Joe Maddon led Tampa Bay to their only two division titles in 2008 and 2010. This includes an American League Pennant and a trip to the World Series in 2008, eventually losing in five games to the Phillies.

Third baseman, Evan Longoria, is Tampa’s all-time leader in several offensive categories, including home runs, doubles, RBI, and runs scored. David Price and James Shields find their names atop most of the teams’ career pitching records, although neither are still with the team.

Winning games in this division is no bargain considering how much money the teams around Tampa Bay are spending. Until the Rays find a way to lure some big-time free agents down to Florida, they will be looking up at the other teams in their division.

Rounding out the eastern division of the American League is the only team that resides north of the border. The team in Toronto was established in 1977 and has played all their home games at the Rogers Centre since 1989. Its capacity of 53,000+ is the second largest in the league, slightly trailing Dodger Stadium.

The most memorable time for Canadian baseball fans was in 1992 and 1993, when Blue Jays captured back-to-back World Championships. Joe Carter’s walk-off homer in ’93 was only the second time a Major League Baseball season ended with a walk-off dinger.

The 1993 Blue Jays’ squad also featured the top three finishers in the AL batting crown (John Olerud, Paul Molitor, Roberto Alomar), the first and only time that feat has been accomplished.

The Jays haven’t made much noise since the consecutive titles, with the 2015 season representing their only AL East crown since their 1993 banner year. The way Boston and New York are spending money and winning games, manager John Gibbons has his work cut out for him if he wants to contend in this division in years to come.

AL Central

To find the next five teams on our list, we must shift gears towards the middle of the country. The American League Central Division is just like it sounds. The teams are not from either coast of the nation, but rather from the Midwest. All five teams in the AL Central Division have experienced their ups and downs.

For example, in 2016, the Minnesota Twins were the only team in the league to lose more than 100 games. They finished an MLB-worst 59-103, so one would assume a playoff berth the following year would be out of the question.

Not in today’s day and age, and not in the AL Central. The 2017 Twins went 85-77, earning a Wild Card berth into the postseason. Let’s take a peek at the Twins and their four divisional opponents in the segments below.

While The Chicago White Sox are one of the original teams when the two leagues converged in 1903, the franchise’s origins date back to 1888. Most haven’t heard of the Sioux City Cornhuskers or the Chicago White Stockings, and that’s okay.

The franchise changed their name to the White Sox in 1904 and have been called that ever since. The team on the south side of town made their home at Comiskey Park from 1910-1990, before the field was demolished.

Currently, the White Sox play at Guaranteed Rate Field just ten or so miles south of where the Cubs play at Wrigley Field.

Like many teams on this list, “The ChiSox” went through a long drought in between World Series’ titles. After winning it all in 1906 and 1907, White Sox fans had to wait until 2005 to celebrate baseball again.

Frank Thomas is their most notable player of all time, as the “Big Hurt” retired as one of the greatest hitting first basemen in the history of the sport.

Owner Jerry Reinsdorf splits his duties between owning the White Sox and the NBA’s Chicago Bulls, his other entity. He will have to squarely focus his efforts on building this team from the ground up if he wants the White Sox to be a factor in the American League Central Division.

Known as the Cleveland Indians since 1915, this team has been on the rise lately. Hiring Terry Francona in 2013 to manage the ballclub has turned out to be a great decision for the Dolan family and their organization.

Their AL pennant in 2016 followed by a 102-win season in 2017 and a seventeen-game throbbing of the AL Central Division has the fans in Cleveland excited for what’s up next.

Despite their two championship wins coming in 1920 and 1948, it is the Indians’ run during the 1990’s that gave them their most opportunities at winning a title. They won the Central Division five consecutive years from 1995-1999, making an appearance in the World Series twice (1995, 1997) during that stretch.

Teams featuring Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, David Justice, and Kenny Lofton were more than opposing pitchers could handle.

After playing in Cleveland Stadium from 1932 to 1993, the team was moved to Jacobs Field in 1994. Their current stadium, Progressive Field is actually the same place as Jacobs Field. The naming rights were purchased in 2008, but many people in Cleveland still refer to the field as “The Jake,” as it was often called for dozens of years.

The most recent 2016 and 2017 squads were loaded from top to bottom. They have an ace pitcher and two-time Cy Young Award winner in Corey Kluber and fantastic hitters like Francisco Lindor and José Ramírez.

The Indians have all the resources in front of them to continue being successful and challenge the perennially good teams in the American League for the next several seasons.

Comerica Park

The history of the Detroit Tigers’ franchise is far less complicated than some of the other teams in Major League Baseball. They haven’t changed names or relocated to a new city like many of their counterparts have. The Detroit Tigers were established in 1901 and the players and coaches that have cycled through are the only changes from year to year.

Ty Cobb, the game’s all-time leader in career batting average (.367) played for the Tigers from 1905-1926, without ever hitting less than .324 in a full season for Detroit.

The Tigers played at Tiger Stadium from 1912-1999 before moving to their current home turf in 2000, Comerica Park. The Tigers have won eleven American League Pennants, but only two since 1985. They have shown brilliance, winning ninety-five regular season games in 2006 and 2011. They won four straight Central crowns from 2011-2014.

On the flip side, they have also experienced supreme frustration. The 2003 Tigers went 43-119. The 119 losses are the second most (1962 Mets lost 120 games) games lost in a single season since 1900.

What we know for sure is the fans will stay loyal to their team in Detroit, as they have since the inception of Major League Baseball over 100 years ago.

The Kansas City Royals had been a bit of an afterthought in their division for quite some time. From 2004-2012, The Royals lost eighty-seven or more games every season, never coming close to contending for a playoff spot.

Fast-forward to present day and the Royals have won eighty or more games every year since 2013, including an AL Pennant in 2014 and a World Series title in 2015. Established in 1969, the Royals are a relatively newer franchise.

Their four AL Championships and pair of World Series titles since 1980 are nothing for Kansas City sports fans to be ashamed about.

Their most famous player of all-time is certainly George Brett. George took every single one of his 10,349 Big League at-bats in a Royals uniform over twenty-one seasons. He won an MVP Award and led the Royals to their first World Series victory in 1985.

The way the Royals are built, manager Ned Yost has a chance to challenge for AL Central Division titles for many seasons to come.

Most people wouldn’t realize the Twins’ franchise originated in 1901. They were the Washington Senators through the 1960 MLB season until the team moved to Minneapolis and became the “Twins” in time for the 1961 season.

They played their games at Metropolitan Stadium for 20 years before moving to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome after the completion of the 1981 year.

It was there that many great memories were created, as the Twins won two World Series while playing inside the Metrodome (1987, 1991). The Twins had moved into Target Field a few years before “The Dome” was demolished in 2014.

The Twins entered the 2017 season essentially left for dead after losing a league-high 103 games the previous season. Somebody forget to tell Twins players and coaches that 2017 was meant to be a rebuilding year, because the Twins made a second-half push that resulted in a Wild Card and a playoff berth.

The Twins have never given up and have fought hard for everything they have earned. They might not look like world-beaters on paper, but make no mistake that the Twins can get hot and win a lot of games. Don’t count them out for a Central Division title just because they don’t have a player they pay 30+ million per year.

AL West

The AL West doesn’t look the exact same as it always has. Composed of only four teams from 1994 to 2012, the Astros were added to the division in 2013 to join the four other teams you see in the division today.

The teams in the American League West Division travel the most miles, as the teams are spread out geographically a bit farther apart than the other divisions. Three teams (Angels, Athletics, Mariners) reside on the West Coast, while two teams are in the Lone Star State (Astros, Rangers).

We will look closely at how successful the teams have been as well as glance over some of the division’s superstars.

We will begin with the 2017 World Champs.

Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Jose Altuve

The year 2017 was a big one for the Houston Astros. After the city experienced horrific trauma and tragedy with Hurricane Harvey ripping apart sections of the city, the baseball team was able to give the fans something to cheer about.

The Astros spent their first fifty-one seasons from 1962-2012 playing in the National League, where they won one pennant in 2005. It was in 2013 when MLB decided to rearrange the divisions, thrusting the Astros from the NL Central to the AL West Division.

This move made plenty of sense, as now each of the six divisions in Major League Baseball were stocked with exactly five teams.

It didn’t look like a good move at first for Astros’ fans, as the team went 51-111 in their first season in the American League. Slowly, but surely, the team started added a crop of young talent, and it was only a matter of time before things clicked.

That time came in 2017, when the Astros won 101 games. It was only the second time the franchise had grasped 100 wins, and this time it really paid off.

A star-studded lineup featuring George Springer, Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve, and Carlos Correa as the first four batters was too much to overcome for the Dodgers, and the Astros won the World Series 4-3, in an instant classic of a series.

World Series tend not to disappoint, but this one will go down as one of the most thrilling seven-game clashes in the history of the sport. The ups and downs experienced by Houston throughout the series can only be understood by reliving the memories and watching the games.

The Astros are built in such a way that it seems nearly impossible to sustain all their young talent. With the reigning AL MVP in Altuve and three other players on the verge of being in the mix for $200+ million contracts, it will be interesting to see how owner Jim Crane decides to proceed.

We focused this segment on the Astros 2017 winning season because, let’s face it, other than the great careers of Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, the Astros hadn’t had a whole lot to get amped up about. That all changed in ’17, and Houston is positioned to make more runs as long as they keep their core of young stars together.

The Los Angeles Angels came into the league in 1961. Like most expansion teams in sports, it took the Angels some time to get situated and become good enough to compete in their division. They won their first AL West crown in 1979, and then won the crown two more times in ’82 and ’86. Then the Angels struggled for quite some time.

For the franchise that has played its home games at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California since 1966, 2002 is when it all changed.

The Angels squeaked into the playoffs that year thanks to a Wild Card berth. They parlayed their opportunity into a World Series title in seven games over Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants.

Since then, The Angels have found plenty of success within their division, but have been unsuccessful in making any real noise once they have arrived in the postseason. Their six Divisional Championships since 2004 are the most by any team in the AL West, but the Angels have failed to win the pennant in any of those six tries.

The time may be soon for the Angels squad to get back to a World Series, as they signed Japanese sensation Shoei Ohtani in the winter of 2017. The 6’4” hero in Japan is slated to not only pitch for the Angels, but also play DH and outfield and supply power from the left-side of the plate.

We know the team is centered around their absolute stud centerfielder, Mike Trout. If Ohtani is able to deliver on the hype surrounding his rare talents, the Angels could be ready to make numerous runs. With Trout and Ohtani in place, look for the Angels to be playing plenty of baseball in October.

Rickey Henderson, Mark McGwire, Reggie Jackson, Dennis Eckersley

Going through the history of the Oakland Athletics franchise takes a little longer than some of these other teams that didn’t enter the league until the 1960s and 1970s. For example, by the time that the Seattle Mariners joined the league and AL West Division in 1977, the A’s had already won eight of their nine World Championships.

The nine World Series titles won by the Athletics are more than every team in Major League Baseball except for the Yankees (27) and St. Louis Cardinals (11).

Many people remember the “Bash Brothers” slugging homers in the green and yellow Athletics uniforms in the late 80s. Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco led the A’s to three consecutive World Series from ’88-’90, winning one ring in ’89.

Since those heydays that featured McGwire, Canseco, and leadoff man Rickey Henderson, The A’s haven’t reached the final series, but they have had their fair share of success in the AL West. They have won the division six times since 2000, plus two additional Wild Card births (2001, 2014).

President of Baseball Operations, Billy Beane, has been known to be bold in his decisions, as evidenced by the 2011 hit film, “Moneyball.” The movie’s plot is centered around the A’s General Manager building his roster in the early 2000s based upon computer-generated information now referred to as analytics.

Beane, who has now moved on from his role as GM to President of the team, was played by Brad Pitt in the feature. The movie brought to light how intricate and detailed Beane and the Athletics were in a time before everyone else was doing it.

The A’s are now looking for their next move to get ahead of the curve and compete for a crown in an ultra-competitive American League West Division.

This a pretty straightforward franchise to discuss. Unfortunately for Seattle fans, there is not a whole lot of team success to speak of in terms of winning titles. In fact, since the team’s inception in 1977, the Mariners have only won three AL West crowns. They have never reached the “Big One,” let alone won one.

Seattle joins the Washinton Nationals as the only two franchises to never appear in a World Series. Obviously, fans in the northwestern region of the country are hoping that changes sometime soon.

Despite not ever winning it all, we can’t forget the historical 2001 regular season the Mariners had. They tied the 1906 Chicago Cubs record of 116 wins, the most ever in a single regular season of baseball.

The bad news is that the Mariners haven’t sprayed champagne around their locking room celebrating an AL West title since that remarkable ’01 season. What Seattle fans have celebrated was the guy who wore #24 in center field.

Ken Griffey Jr. did it all for Seattle. From smashing home runs over the right-field wall to robbing homers with his glove in center field, Griffey was one of the most popular players of all time.

When a guy receives the highest percentage of votes (99.3%) any player has ever received on their way to Cooperstown, you know he was special.

“Junior” made highlight plays throughout his career. His first eleven illustrious years were the most significant. Those all came wearing a Seattle Mariners uniform.

The eighteenth team added to Major League Baseball in 1961 was the Washington Senators. Why is this important when discussing the Texas Rangers? Simply put, they are the same franchise!

The team moved to Arlington, Texas in time for the start of the 1972 season and changed their name to the Rangers. They have been playing home games at Globe Life Park in Arlington since 1994, and will be there until their new stadium, “Globe Life Field” is finished in either 2020 or 2021.

The Rangers are one of the seven MLB franchises that are yet to feel the full effect of being atop the baseball world. They have made two appearances in the World Series coming in back-to-back years. However, they lost both times, eventually falling to the Giants in five games in 2010 and losing to Cardinals in seven hard fought games in 2011.

With the new stadium set to open, this team has big plans, and that includes spending money on free agents. We know that they aren’t afraid to sign a big check, as demonstrated by the record-breaking (at the time) ten-year, $252 million deal they inked Alex Rodriguez to in 2000.

Four players (Cole Hamels, Shin-Soo Choo, Adrian Beltre, Prince Fielder) are due to make more than $18 million during the 2018 season, and they are on the hook to pay shortstop Elvis Andrus $15.25 million in each of the next 3 years.

President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Jon Daniels will have to get creative in trying to rework this roster into being an AL West contender, considering the teams he is up against.

The National League

Major League Baseball has done a commendable job in realigning the two leagues and the three divisions within each league. Since the Houston Astros were moved from the National League Central to the American League West in 2013, the two leagues now are synced up.

Just like the AL, the National League features an East, Central, and West Division, with exactly five teams in each. We mentioned how the main difference between the two leagues is the absence of a designated hitter in the NL.

National League teams are forced to have their pitcher hit, so the strategies become a little different. The use of small ball is far more significant in the NL, as bunting and sacrifices in order to move runners over is far more prevalent. Essentially, with one less feared hitter in the lineup, scoring runs in the NL ends up being slightly harder.

There have been forty-three consecutive seasons in which more runs were scored in the American League as opposed to the National League, with 2017 being the most recent.

Let’s start breaking down each team in the NL, starting with the National League East Division.

NL East

The National League East was founded in 1969, but does not look identical to how it did back then. The Mets and the Phillies are the only current members that were part of the original division back in ’69. The Marlins, Braves, and Nationals all came at different times, as you will learn below.

The Atlanta Braves had a remarkable streak of eleven straight NL East titles, and it’s hard to believe a feat like that will ever be achieved again. Each team has had their share of hot runs and dry spells, and we have seen plenty of legendary players.

The NL East is full of records and memories, so let’s start diving in now.

Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, Greg Maddux, Chipper Jones, John Smoltz, Tom Glavine

The Atlanta Braves haven’t always been based in the capital city of Georgia. The franchise played in Boston from 1871-1952, adopting more than a handful of names before settling on the “Braves” for good in 1941.

I say “for good” because the team actually went from the “Rustlers” to the Braves from 1912-1935, before going by the Boston Brees from 1936-1940.

The club they used to call the “Beaneaters” back in 1900 moved from Boston to Milwaukee for thirteen years, before finally settling in Atlanta in 1966. Along for the ride from Milwaukee to Atlanta after the 1965 season was their star right fielder, Hank Aaron.

Hank has his name plastered all over the Braves’ record books, leading nearly every major hitting category. Third baseman Chipper Jones walked away from the game in 2012 after spending his entire nineteen years in the league in Atlanta.

They have had no shortage of Hall of Fame pitchers. Warren Spahn was dominant from 1946-1964 for the team, and of course we remember the trio of Maddux, Smoltz, and Glavine through the late ’90s and into the 2000s.

The eleven straight National League East Titles Atlanta won from 1995-2005 are an MLB record. Back then, you could just pencil in the Braves team for October baseball before spring training even got underway.

The location of all those great memories, Turner Field, is no longer the site of Braves’ home games. They opened SunTrust Field in 2017, and are hoping to create plenty of lasting memories in their new home. They will have to get back to the drawing board as they have lost more games than they have won every year since 2014.

One of the two teams added to the league in 1993 as part of the expansion, the Miami Marlins unexpectedly won the World Series in 1997 and 2003. The 1997 season was extraordinary, as the Marlins did a couple things that had never been done before.

For starters, winning it all in just their fifth year in the league was a was a record for the shortest amount of time for an expansion team to hoist the final trophy. Secondly, the ’97 Marlins became the first team to capture a WS after earning a Wild Card berth into the postseason.

They made the trip to the White House again in 2003 after winning their second World Championship. Despite only being in the league for ten seasons, the Marlins already had two titles on their resume.

They have certainly shaken things up in attempts to try and get back to glory. Derek Jeter led a group of investors in acquiring the team in 2017. Jeter has wasted no time making his presence felt.

He unloaded their superstar Giancarlo Stanton to Derek’s former employer, the New York Yankees. This was after trading away another one of their stud outfielders, Marcell Ozuna, in a move that left Marlins’ fans scratching their heads.

Hopefully Jeter and manager Don Mattingly can build the team the way they envision and get the Marlins back to winning form.

The timeline of the New York Mets has been fairly straightforward, especially to some of these other teams. For example, the Braves have experienced a handful of name changes over time while the New York Mets have never.

Ever since the Mets joined Major League Baseball in 1962, they have been the Mets. After playing at the historic Polo Grounds for the 1962 and 1963 seasons, the team moved into Shea Stadium in 1964.

Shea Stadium was destroyed just two weeks after the 2008 season ended. The Mets have been playing at Citi Field in Queens, New York ever since. Their most successful season since moving to Citi Field was in 2015, when the Mets captured the NL East and the NL Pennant, before falling to the Kansas City Royals in five games in the final.

The New York Mets have won a pair of titles in their history in 1969 and 1986. Their win in ’86 was highlighted by the famous Bill Buckner blunder. Had the routine ground ball that rolled in between the legs of Bill Buckner at first base been fielded properly, the Red Sox would have won the World Series.

Instead, the Mets walked off with the win and won the seventh game to cap off the nightmare for Buckner. The Mets have been unable to repeat as World Champs since the famous series in 1986. They won the NL Pennant in 2000 and faced off against the Yankees in the Subway Series, before falling short in five games.

The Mets surely have a chance to get back on top of the National League East Division, but it’s going to take some time and probably a big free-agent signing or two before the Mets are a legitimate contender again.

Famous Players
Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton

Playing baseball as the Philadelphia Phillies since 1883, this organization is not just the oldest “one name, one city” team in baseball; they are the oldest sports franchise in all of American professional sports.

With seven NL Pennants and two World Series victories to their name, the Phillies have certainly had their share of highs and lows. Their most recent run of five straight NL East Divisional Championships from 2007-2011 included back-to-back World Series appearances, including winning a ring in 2008.

The best player to ever put on a Phillies uniform happens to be perhaps the finest third baseman of all time, Mike Schmidt. He won ten Gold Gloves while also slugging 548 home runs, all as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The 1980 World Series MVP brought the first title to the city of brotherly love, and will always be remembered for the level of professionalism he brought to the ballpark each and every day.

“The Fightin’ Phils” have been playing their home games at Citizens Bank Park since 2004 after playing in Veterans Stadium for more than thirty years. As many of you probably already know, the sports fans and media in Philadelphia aren’t the nicest and most patient people on planet Earth.

They have not been a factor in their division since winning the five straight (2007-2011) and don’t appear to be in a position to contend unless they get some help. They hired former journeyman player Gabe Kapler at the end of 2017 to be their manager in hopes of returning to relevance in the baseball world.

Max Scherzer, Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, Vladimir Guerrero

The Montreal Expos came into the league in 1969 and remained a constant through the 2004 season. Winning only a single divisional title (1981) during their time in Canada, the team was ready to make move. They did that in 2005 when the team moved to the nation’s capital and became the Washington Nationals.

Unfortunately, they join the Seattle Mariners as the only two franchises in MLB to never play in a World Series.

We have a feeling that could be changing soon, thanks to the what the “Nats” have in place. As many owners and general managers can attest to, the first overall pick of the Draft doesn’t always pan out.

In the case of the Washington Nationals, they hit it out of the park. Holding consecutive number one overall draft picks in 2009 and 2010, GM Mike Rizzo felt the pressure to draft future superstars.

Choosing Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper has made Rizzo look brilliant, as both are right near the top of the league in their respective positions. Clearly the team is knocking on the door, winning the division in 2012, 2014, 2016. In 2017, they ran away and hid from NL East competition, winning the division by twenty games.

Dominating by such a landslide means the Nationals aren’t going anywhere for the time being. Max Scherzer has won the Cy Young Award in both 2016 and 2017, and we haven’t even mentioned Daniel Murphy or Ryan Zimmerman’s contributions.

Look for the Nationals to remain one of the favorites to be playing baseball in late October.

NL Central

The National League Central Division wasn’t added to Major League Baseball until the 1994 strike-shortened season. Prior to ’94, the league had utilized just an East and a West Division in both the American and National Leagues. To help even things out, Central Divisions were added to both leagues, and teams were shifted around to make it work.

That’s why when you look at the NL Central you will see an outlier as far as location goes. The Pittsburgh Pirates are the only team in this division that is isn’t located in the Midwest, and therefore are forced to travel more miles than other opponents.

The Pirates have tried multiple times without success to move back into the NL East Division, where they were before the “reshuffle” in’94.

Follow along as our baseball enthusiasts are going to talk about each team in the NL Central.

Not winning a World Series since 1908 is a crazy-long drought for any baseball team and city to withstand. The Chicago Cubs were forgiven for all their failures when they brought the north side of “Chi-Town” a WS ring in 2016.

Manager Joe Maddon was hired before the 2015 season for this exact reason. Delivering on his promise in just his second year with the team has Cubs’ fans feeling somewhat indebted to Maddon.

As terrific as the players and coaching staff for the Cubs has been, when people think of the Chicago Cubs, the field they play on is almost always the first thing that comes to mind.

We are talking about Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs since 1916. Famous for its ivy-coated brick walls in the outfield, there is as much or more tradition and history in this ballpark as any in all of baseball.

The brick walls covered in green bushy leaves are great to talk and write about, as long as you aren’t one of the many outfielders who has crashed trying to make a catch.

The Cubs have won five Central Division crowns since 2003, and have shown every sign to indicate they will challenge the other four teams year in and year out. Agreeing to terms with Theo Epstein in 2011 to allow him to run the team has been a terrific move for the Cubbies.

Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Joey Votto

The Cincinnati Red Stockings entered the league in 1882. They have been known simply as the Reds since 1890, except for five seasons (1954-1958) when they were called the Cincinnati Redlegs. Either way, this franchise has been in Cincinnati since 1882, so you can imagine the loyalty and dedication fans in Cincy have for their hometown ballclub.

The Reds are no stranger to celebrating victories. They have been to nine World Series, winning five of them. Their most recent triumph came in 1990, when they swept the Oakland A’s 4-0.

The most successful and remembered period of time for the Reds organization came during the 1970’s decade. Known as “The Big Red Machine,” the Reds won six divisional crowns during the ‘70s, including back-to-back World Series in ’75 and ’76.

The Big Red Machine was the alias for the Reds’ high-powered offense. Led by Pete Rose, and Johnny Bench, infielders Joe Morgan and Tony Pérez also provided some pop in the lineup. During their two years in which they won it all, the Reds went an astounding 69-19 in the eighty-eight games that their regular eight starters were able to play together.

This “mini-dynasty” in Cincy has younger fans who never experienced the ‘70s yearning for another string of winning seasons. Having not won the National League Pennant since 1990, the Reds need to develop talent from within their farm system to get back to being relevant in the NL Central.

The Reds have not spent enough money and don’t have the enormous media market that some other cities/teams have. For these reasons, they haven’t been able to lure in the big-name free agent like several other teams have been able to do. A few winning seasons in Cincinnati and things can certainly change quickly.

Famous Players
Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Ryan Braun

The Milwaukee Brewers timeline isn’t so simple and straightforward. When the franchise began in 1969, they played in Seattle and were part of the American League. They were called the Pilots. The team went bankrupt within a year and was moved to Milwaukee, which is where their name was changed to the “Brewers.” Seems easy enough; however, we aren’t finished just yet.

The Brewers would play in the American League West for two more seasons before becoming a member of the American League East, where they remained through 1993.

Then in 1994, Major League Baseball repositioned the teams and created the AL Central, which is where the “Brew-Crew” landed.

In 1998, the Brewers got to stay in Milwaukee, but they were moved from the American League Central to the National League Central. This was part of another rearrangement after the league added the Tampa Bay Rays and the Arizona Diamondbacks, bringing the total number of teams to thirty.

The Brewers won an American League Pennant in 1982, but are yet to reach the World Series as a member of the NL. First-ballot Hall of Famers Robin Yount and Paul Molitor led the Brewers through the ‘80s and were about as consistent of players as the league had at the time.

Ryan Braun will have to head the charge as the Brewers attempt to get back into the picture. They won eighty-six games in 2017 and narrowly missed out on a postseason berth. Look for Milwaukee to threaten for a shot at the playoffs, especially if they are able to add depth to their starting rotation.

Famous Players
Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Bill Mazeroski, Andrew McCutchen

Let’s just cut to the chase and be honest. Moving from the NL East to the NL Central in 1994 hasn’t been a good move for the Pittsburgh Pirates any way you slice it. First off, the travel is much more demanding to get to the cities in the Midwest, where the other four teams in the division are located.

Secondly, the Pirates franchise has won five World Series, nine NL Pennants, and nine NL East crowns. Since moving to the Central in ’94, the Pirates have a big goose egg across the board. They are the only team in the Central that has not won the division since its inception, and they haven’t even sniffed an NL Pennant.

They did clinch Wild Card berths in three straight years from 2013-2015. However, they lost the “one-game play-in” in two of those seasons, while losing to the Cardinals in the Divisional Series in the other.

Rather than focus on the lack of success in recent years, we should appreciate what some of their best players were able to accomplish while playing in The Steel City.

Roberto Clemente and Willie Stargell both played every single one of their games as a member of the Pirates, and each man won a pair of World Series. Unfortunately both of the parks (Forbes Field and Three Rivers Stadium) that these memories were created at were demolished.

Pittsburgh has been playing half their games at PNC Park since 2001, and the fans are still waiting to really celebrate. Other teams in the city like the Steelers and the Penguins have given locals plenty to cheer about.

Owner Robert Nutting will have to start reaching into his pockets to entice some young stars to come to Pittsburgh if they are going to be competitive in the Central. The Cubs and the Cardinals are spending liberally, and they have won the most recently.

Without hitting the jackpot on some of their up and coming minor league players, the Pirates will continue to find themselves looking up in the standings at Chicago and St. Louis.

With eleven World Championships, only the New York Yankees franchise can claim more. The St. Louis Cardinals have consistently been one of the best teams in the league, as they are always a threat to come out of the NL Central Division.

“The Cards” play at Busch Stadium, but not the same one they always have. Their home from 1966-2005, “Busch Memorial Stadium” was demolished, and the Cardinals started playing in their new home, “Busch Stadium” in 2006.

It gets even more confusing considering that their home from 1920-1966 “Sportsman’s Park” was also called Busch Stadium starting in 1953 after the sale of the team.

St. Louis-based brewing company Anheuser-Busch purchased the Cardinals, and the president of the corporation named the stadium after his family’s name. Speaking of keeping it in the family, the Cardinals hired former catcher Mike Matheny to be their manager in 2012 — a move that is proving to be beneficial for both sides.

Matheny has led his team to three straight NL Central crowns from 2013-2015. We know we can count on this squad to be a factor coming down the stretch nearly every year, and it has been that way for a long time.

One of the best players to ever play the game played his entire career with “The Redbirds.” Stan Musial made twenty-four all-star teams and won three World Series, and his #6 jersey is retired in St. Louis.

First-ballot Hall of Famer Bob Gibson struck out 3,117 batters and won two Cy Young Awards over seventeen seasons, all wearing a Cardinals’ uniform. His #45 jersey will also never be worn again by another St. Louis player.

There is plenty to talk about with a team rich in traditions like the Cardinals. We wanted to highlight their consistency and praise the team that has been the most steady in the history of the NL Central.

NL West

The last division we are going to discuss is the National League West. When the Arizona Diamondbacks joined Major League Baseball in 1998, they joined the NL West, forming the five-team division you see today. The way the division is currently set up makes a lot of sense, as three teams are located in California, and the other two teams reside in other southwestern states.

At one point in time, the Atlanta Braves were actually part of the division, despite being on the opposite coast of the country. The Cincinnati Reds and Houston Astros were also NL West members from 1969 all the way up until 1994.

Yes, there has been plenty of movement, but the three Cali teams have been part of the National League West since its origin. The Los Angeles Dodgers have been the winningest franchise within the division, capturing the NL West sixteen times.

Let’s take a glimpse at all five teams that compete to win this division.

Major League Baseball consisted of twenty-eight teams before the 1998 season began. With the addition of the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League, the National League needed a new member to even things out and make it a clean thirty teams in the league.

The Arizona Diamondbacks were the solution and Chase Field opened on the opening day of the ’98 season. Just because they are one of the two newest franchises in professional baseball, don’t think this “D’Backs” team hasn’t made a name for themselves.

We thought the Marlins winning it all in their fifth year as a franchise was something that would never be topped. Arizona one-upped them when they won the 2001 World Series, in just their fourth year in the league.

They did so by having a dominant 1-2 punch in Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling. The duo pitched brilliantly throughout the postseason that year and were named Co-MVPs of the memorable seven-game World Series against the Yankees.

The Diamondbacks added NL West titles the next year in 2002, as well as in 2007 and 2011. In 2017, they won ninety-three games and clinched a Wild Card berth, showing the rest of the NL West that they are a team to be reckoned with.

First baseman Paul Goldschmidt owns many of the team’s hitting records, as he has played his entire career in the purple and teal colored uniforms. He will continue to add to his offensive numbers in the park that isn’t so friendly to pitchers.

Speaking of their ballpark, fans have no problem having a good time attending D’Backs games. Chase Field is known for having a “swimming pool suite” behind the center field wall. If you are willing to pay between five to seven grand, you will get thirty-five tickets that will have access to the party suite.

If you are in Phoenix and plan on attending a baseball game, you might as well do it in style.

The Colorado Rockies made their debut in Major League Baseball in 1993 as a member of the National League West Division. They remain there today, playing their homes games in well-known Coors Field since 1995.

Seating over 50,000 screaming fans, Coors Field is the second largest stadium (capacity wise) in all of the Majors. The 415-foot distance to the center field wall is the third farthest distance out of the thirty MLB parks.

Don’t let this confuse you into thinking it’s one of the more difficult parks to hit homers in.

The extremely high altitude in Denver makes the ball fly farther and longer compared to a park that has an altitude closer to sea level. When you see pitchers constantly struggling at Coors Field, have some sympathy.

If there was a picture in the dictionary to provide an example of a hitter-friendly park, you would likely be staring at an image of Coors Field.

The Rockies celebrated their best season in 2007, winning their first National League Pennant. They won ninety games for the first time as a franchise, while sweeping the Diamondbacks in the NLCS that season.

Todd Helton and Larry Walker share just about all of the career hitting records, but current Rockies’ third baseman Nolan Arenado is hot on their trails. Three straight seasons (2015-2017) of 130 or more RBI has Nolan knocking on the door at some of the franchise’s records.

The way the ball flies out of Coors Field, don’t be surprised if Arenado’s numbers get better and he ends his tenure in the league as the Rockies’ best player of all time.

It will be tough to recap the history of the Dodgers in a few short paragraphs, so we will focus on the highlights. The franchise was based in Brooklyn from 1883-1957. They didn’t actually become the “Dodgers” until the 1932 season, when they ditched the “Robins” mascot. The Dodgers have won six World Series, all between 1955-1988.

They have been playing their games at Dodger Stadium since 1962. The historic landmark is not just famous because of how long it has been there. Dodger Stadium seats 56,000 strong, making it the largest ballpark in all of baseball.

Planted just north of downtown LA, the stadium has no problem filling its seats. It doesn’t hurt that the “Boys in Blue” have won the NL West five years in a row from 2013-2017. Their National League Pennant and World Series appearance in 2017 was the team’s first since 1988.

Left-handed starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw has a lot to do with the team’s success. He has won three Cy Young Awards and gives the Dodgers an excellent chance to win each and every time he takes the hill.

Los Angeles will have no issues staying at or near the top of the National League, as the owners aren’t shy about spending cash. A group led by Guggenheim Partners CEO Mark Walter and former Lakers star Magic Johnson purchased the team for $2.15 billion in 2012.

Expect their number of twenty-two pennants won in the National League to rise as long as these owners are in control of the team.

The San Diego Padres have unfortunately had the least amount of success in this division. They have been to the World Series twice as a franchise, but did not fare too well. After losing to the Tigers 4-1 in 1984, the Padres were swept 4-0 by the Yankees and their shot at becoming World Champs came up short.

The most distinguished player in Padres history is without a doubt right fielder Tony Gwynn. After attending nearby San Diego State University, Gwynn played all of his twenty MLB seasons in a Padres uniform.

Tony wasn’t just the greatest Padres hitter of all time, he was one of the best period. He never hit less than .309 in a full season, while winning eight National League batting titles.

Tony played his entire MLB career at Qualcomm Stadium, also home to the San Diego Chargers at the time. Gwynn called it quits in 2001, three years short of being able to play in the new ballpark that was being built.

San Diego baseball fans were treated to the luxurious opening of Petco Park in downtown San Diego in time for the 2004 season, and the Padres have played eighty-one regular season games per year there ever since. The Padres carried the momentum of the new field into the 2005 and 2006 seasons, winning the NL West Division both years.

Sadly, San Diego has failed to win more than seventy-seven games since 2011 and has been at or near the bottom of the NL West. The only way the Padres can get out of staring up at the other teams in the standings is to develop their minor league players or get a bit lucky in free agency.

San Diego has not shown the propensity to spend money on high-profile free agents in the past. We know the city has everything to offer from the great weather to the plethora of family activities, so luring in a big free-agent shouldn’t be too tough of a task.

We will keep out eyes out on whether owner Ron Fowler and General Manager and President of the team A.J. Preller want to dip into their pockets and bring in some help.

Rounding out the National League West Division is the team that has won more NL Pennants (23) than any other franchise. Not all of this came in San Francisco however. The Giants played in New York from their inception in 1883 until 1957.

The 1958 Major League Baseball season was a landmark season for baseball. That was when two of the New York-based squads decided to pack their bags and head west to California. The Dodgers moved to Los Angeles while the Giants made the city of San Francisco home.

The Giants didn’t start winning championships right away and had plenty of work to do to get back to winning form. Six of their twenty-three pennants have come while residing in “San Fran,” including the three World Series rings Giants players won (2010, 2012, 2014).

What makes the 2014 World Series victory so impressive is that the Giants squeaked into the playoffs via a Wild Card berth and had to play a “one-game play-in” against the Pirates just to make it to the divisional series.

The Giants caught absolute fire that fall. After defeating the Pirates in the Wild Card Game and the Nationals in the first round, San Francisco beat the Cardinals in five games in the NLCS.

Not wanting stop there, the Giants capped off their memorable run by edging out the Kansas City Royals in seven games.

Two of the five greatest outfielders to ever play the game played in a Giants uniform. We may never see players like Willie Mays and Barry Bonds again. Their numbers during playing days with the Giants explain exactly why they are admired so highly.

The Giants are not afraid to spend money and make trades, essentially doing whatever is necessary to stay competitive with the Dodgers and the rest of the NL West. Bruce Bochy has been managing the team since 2007 and will continue to do so as long as the Giants keep winning ball games.

The Summary

This page was meant to be very simple and straightforward. Creating an organized page listing all thirty Major League teams was our goal. We wanted you to have a reference guide anytime you wanted to find out anything about one of the thirty teams.

Breaking the teams up by league and division was done in order to make things easy to read and follow. You can see how the teams are primarily grouped based on their geographical location to make travel less rigorous.

Learning about the configurations of the divisions and how certain teams have moved from league to league was all part of getting you acquainted with the history of the American and National Leagues.

You can see how teams have changed mascots and stadiums throughout the years. It’s not possible to tell you everything about every team in one single catalog, so choosing the most significant highlights and pieces of information was our intention.

Just remember that players get traded and managers get fired all the time — it’s part of the business. Staying loyal to your favorite team will be a test over time, but just stay patient. As you learned above, many of the organizations had to do the exact same thing.
