See respective team articles for more information. By , more than clubs were members. Most of the strongest clubs remained those based in the northeastern U.
A schism developed between professional and amateur ballplayers after the founding of the Cincinnati club. The league placed its emphasis on clubs rather than on players.
Clubs could now enforce player contracts, preventing players from jumping to higher-paying clubs. Clubs were required to play the full schedule of games instead of forfeiting scheduled games when the club was no longer in the running for the league championship, which happened frequently under the NA.
A concerted effort was made to curb gambling on games, which was leaving the validity of results in doubt. The early years of the NL were tumultuous, with threats from rival leagues and a rebellion by players against the hated "reserve clause", which restricted the free movement of players between clubs.
Competitor leagues formed regularly and also disbanded regularly. The most successful was the American Association — , sometimes called the "beer and whiskey league" for its tolerance of the sale of alcoholic beverages to spectators.
For several years, the NL and American Association champions met in a postseason championship series—the first attempt at a World Series.
The two leagues merged in as a single team NL, but the NL dropped four teams after the season. This led to the formation of the American League in under AL president Ban Johnson , and the resulting bidding war for players led to widespread contract-breaking and legal disputes.
The war between the AL and NL caused shock waves throughout the baseball world. At a meeting at the Leland Hotel in Chicago in , the other baseball leagues negotiated a plan to maintain their independence.
A new National Association was formed to oversee these minor leagues. Several other early defunct baseball leagues are officially considered major leagues, and their statistics and records are included with those of the two current major leagues.
Some researchers, including Nate Silver , dispute the major-league status of the UA by pointing out that franchises came and went and that the St.
Louis club was deliberately "stacked"; the St. The period between and is commonly referred to as the "Dead-Ball Era.
The term also accurately describes the condition of the baseball itself. The baseball used American rather than the modern Australian wool yarn and was not wound as tightly, affecting the distance that it would travel.
Fans were expected to throw back fouls and rare home runs. Baseballs also became stained with tobacco juice, grass, and mud, and sometimes the juice of licorice, which some players would chew for the purpose of discoloring the ball.
Also, pitchers could manipulate the ball through the use of the spitball. In use of this pitch was restricted to a few pitchers with a grandfather clause.
The adoption of the foul strike rule in the early twentieth century quickly sent baseball from a high-scoring game to one where scoring runs became a struggle.
Prior to the institution of this rule, foul balls were not counted as strikes: In , the NL adopted the foul strike rule, and the AL followed suit in The season was notable for the death of Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians.
Chapman, who was struck in the head by a pitch and died a few hours later, became the only MLB player to die of an on-field injury, a tragedy which led directly to both leagues requiring the placing into play new, white baseballs whenever a ball became scuffed or dirty, helping bring the "dead-ball" era to an end.
By , only two MLB teams turned a profit. Baseball owners cut their rosters from 25 men to 23 men, and even the best players took pay cuts.
Team executives were innovative in their attempts to survive, creating night games, broadcasting games live by radio and rolling out promotions such as free admission for women.
The onset of World War II created a significant shortage of professional baseball players, as more than men left MLB teams to serve in the military.
Many of them played on service baseball teams that entertained military personnel in the US or in the Pacific. MLB teams of this time largely consisted of young men, older players, and those with a military classification of 4F , indicating mental, physical, or moral unsuitability for service.
Men like Pete Gray , a one-armed outfielder, got the chance to advance to the major leagues. However, MLB rosters did not include any black players through the end of the war.
Wartime blackout restrictions , designed to keep outdoor lighting at low levels, caused another problem for baseball.
These rules limited traveling and night games to the point that the season nearly had to be canceled. Roosevelt and pleaded for the continuation of baseball during the war in hopes for a start of a new major league season.
President Roosevelt responded, "I honestly feel that it would be best for the country to keep baseball going. There will be fewer people unemployed and everybody will work longer hours and harder than ever before.
And that means that they ought to have a chance for recreation and for taking their minds off their work even more than before.
With the approval of President Roosevelt, spring training began in with few repercussions. Branch Rickey, president and general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, began making efforts to introduce a black baseball player to the previously all-white professional baseball leagues in the mids.
He selected Jackie Robinson from a list of promising Negro league players. The following year, the Dodgers called up Robinson to the major leagues.
On April 15, , Robinson made his major league debut at Ebbets Field before a crowd of 26, spectators, including more than 14, black patrons.
Black baseball fans began flocking to see the Dodgers when they came to town, abandoning the Negro league teams that they had followed exclusively.
And if any of you cannot use the money, I will see that you are all traded. Robinson received significant encouragement from several major league players, including Dodgers teammate Pee Wee Reese who said, "You can hate a man for many reasons.
Color is not one of them. Less than three months later, Larry Doby became the first African-American to break the color barrier in the American League with the Cleveland Indians.
Satchel Paige was signed by the Indians and the Dodgers added star catcher Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe , who was later the first winner of the Cy Young Award for his outstanding pitching.
MLB banned the signing of women to contracts in , but that ban was lifted in From to , the two major leagues consisted of two eight-team leagues.
The 16 teams were located in ten cities, all in the northeastern and midwestern United States: Louis each had two teams.
Louis was the southernmost and westernmost city with a major league team. The longest possible road trip, from Boston to St. Louis, took about 24 hours by railroad.
In , the St. Louis Browns became the Baltimore Orioles. The Giants were already suffering from slumping attendance records at their aging ballpark, the Polo Grounds.
Had the Dodgers moved out west alone, the St. The joint move made West Coast road trips economical for visiting teams. In , the first Washington Senators franchise moved to Minneapolis—St.
Paul to become the Minnesota Twins. Two new teams were added to the American League at the same time: The Astros known as the "Colt. In , the major leagues moved to the "Deep South" when the Braves moved to Atlanta.
In , the American and National Leagues both added two expansion franchises. In , baseball expanded again , adding a second Canadian team, the Toronto Blue Jays , as well as the Seattle Mariners.
Subsequently, no new teams were added until the s and no teams moved until In , the Brewers switched leagues by joining the National League and two new teams were added: After the season, the team owners voted in favor of contraction.
Several MLB teams had been considered for elimination in early talks about contraction, but the Montreal Expos and the Minnesota Twins were the two teams that came closest to folding under the plan.
Plans for MLB contraction were halted when the Twins landlord was awarded a court injunction that required the team to play its home games at their stadium.
The Montreal Expos became the first franchise in over three decades to move when they became the Washington Nationals in This move left Canada with just one team, but it also returned baseball to the United States capital city after a year absence.
Not counting the short-lived Federal League, Montreal is the only city granted an MLB franchise since that does not currently host a team.
By the late s, the balance between pitching and hitting had swung in favor of the pitchers. In —later nicknamed "the year of the pitcher"  —Boston Red Sox player Carl Yastrzemski won the American League batting title with an average of just.
In , the American League, which had been suffering from much lower attendance than the National League, sought to increase scoring even further by initiating the designated hitter DH rule.
Throughout the s and s, as baseball expanded, NFL football had been surging in popularity, making it economical for many of these cities to build multi-purpose stadiums instead of single-purpose baseball fields.
Because of climate and economic issues, many of these facilities had playing surfaces made from artificial turf , as well as the oval designs characteristic of stadiums designed to house both baseball and football.
These characteristics changed the nature of professional baseball, putting a higher premium on speed and defense over home-run hitting power, since the fields were often too big for teams to expect to hit many home runs and foul balls hit in the air could more easily be caught for outs.
Teams began to be built around pitching—particularly their bullpens—and speed on the basepaths. Artificial surfaces meant balls traveled quicker and bounced higher, so it became easier to hit ground balls " in the hole " between the corner and middle infielders.
As stolen bases increased, home run totals dropped. After Willie Mays hit 52 home runs in , only one player George Foster reached that mark until the s.
Routinely in the late s and early s, baseball players hit 40 or 50 home runs in a season, a feat that was considered rare even in the s.
It has since become apparent that at least some of this power surge was a result of players using steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
A baseball uniform is a type of uniform worn by baseball players , and by some non-playing personnel, such as field managers and coaches. In modern times, however, exceptions to this pattern have become common, with teams using their team name on both uniforms.
The New York Knickerbockers were the first baseball team to use uniforms, taking the field on April 4, , in pants made of blue wool, white flannel shirts jerseys and straw hats.
In the late s, the Detroit Wolverines and Washington Nationals of the National League and the Brooklyn Bridegrooms of the American Association were the first to wear striped uniforms.
Spring training is a series of practices and exhibition games preceding the start of the regular season. Spring training allows new players to audition for roster and position spots, and gives existing team players practice time prior to competitive play.
The teams are divided into the Cactus League  and the Grapefruit League. Autograph seekers also find greater access to players during spring training.
Spring training typically lasts almost two months, starting in mid February and running until just before the season opening day, traditionally the first week of April.
As pitchers benefit from a longer training period, pitchers and catchers begin spring training several days before the rest of the team.
The current MLB regular season, consisting of games per team, typically begins on the first Sunday in April and ends on the first Sunday in October.
Teams generally play games five to seven days per week, commonly having Monday or Thursday as an off day. Frequently, games are scheduled at night.
Sunday games are generally played during the afternoon, allowing teams to travel to their next destination prior to a Monday night game.
In addition, teams will play day games frequently on Opening Day, holidays, and getaway days. Each team plays 19 games against each of its four divisional opponents.
It plays one home series and one away series, amounting to six or seven games, against the 10 other teams in its league.
A team also plays one of the divisions in the other league, rotating each year, with two opponents in a three-game home series, two in a three-game away series, and one with four games split between home and away.
Furthermore, each team has an interleague "natural rival" in many cases its counterpart in the same metro area with which it plays two home games and two away games each year.
With an odd number of teams in each league 15 , it is necessary to have two teams participate in interleague play for most days in the season, except when two or more teams have a day off.
Each team plays 20 interleague games throughout the season, usually with just one interleague game per day, but for one weekend in late May all teams will participate in an interleague series.
Before , interleague play was structured differently: Before , season-long interleague play was not necessary, because each league had an even number of teams.
In , the Houston Astros moved to the American League, so that each league would have 15 teams. Over the course of a season, teams compete for one of the five playoff berths in their league.
They can win one of these berths by either winning their division , or by capturing a wild card spot. After the conclusion of the game season, an additional tie-breaking game or games may be needed to determine postseason participation.
In early-to-mid July, just after the midway point of the season, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game is held during a four-day break from the regular-season schedule.
From to , two games were held each season, one was held in July and one was held in August. The designated-hitter rule was used in the All-Star Game for the first time in Following games used a DH when the game was played in an AL ballpark.

Edit Did You Know? Trivia Many tricks were used to make the actors seem like they were as good as their characters. First, a catcher would never stand that tall, unless they were making the pitch an obvious high, out-of-the-strike-zone pitch.
Catchers definitely stand that tall, although it is not common. Vaughn hit the glove, but hit it at the high target set by Taylor.

Players were tested at least once per year, with the chance that several players could be tested many times per year. A book, Game of Shadows by San Francisco Chronicle investigative reporters Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada , chronicled alleged extensive use of performance enhancers, including several types of steroids and growth hormone by baseball superstars Barry Bonds, Gary Sheffield , and Jason Giambi.
The appointment was made after several influential members of the U. It pointed out that HGH is likely a placebo with no performance-enhancing effects.
They also agreed to implement a new test to reveal the use of testosterone for the season. In early April , Ramirez retired from baseball rather than face a game suspension for his second positive steroid test.
Fox broadcasts all games of the World Series. TBS airs Sunday afternoon regular season games non-exclusive nationally. In , TBS began its exclusive rights to any tiebreaker games that determine division or wild card champions; it also airs exclusive coverage of the Division Series round of the playoffs.
These games are typically split between a local broadcast television station and a local or regional sports network RSN , though some teams only air local games through RSNs or through their own team networks.
MLB has several blackout rules. Fox Sports Networks also show many games in other areas. If the Braves played a team that FSN or another local broadcaster showed, the local station will have the broadcast rights for its own local market, while TBS would have been blacked out in the same market during the game.
ESPN Radio holds national broadcast rights and broadcasts Sunday Night Baseball weekly throughout the season in addition to all playoff games.
In addition, each team employs its own announcers, who broadcast during the regular season. Most teams operate regional networks to cover their fan bases; some of these supposedly regional networks such as the New York Yankees Radio Network have a national reach with affiliates located across the United States.
MLB games are also broadcast live on the internet. All television and radio broadcasts of games are available via subscription to MLB.
Blackout rules are still applied for live television broadcasts, but not radio broadcasts. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see MLB disambiguation.
