Sports have always been one of the most favorite and active pass times for most of us. Initially they were more in the scattered form, but with increasing interest shown by the sports fanatics, an organized body had to be established. And in order to cater that need several leagues were formed in the past, but in the end it was Major League Baseball or MLB that survived and still continues to entertain millions of baseball fans all across the globe.
MLB was formed back when National League and American League decided to join hands to form up one, much larger professional baseball league. Although initially the total count of the teams in the league wasn’t as much as it is today, but still combining both of these leagues really sparked up the sense of competitiveness among all the teams. But all of this has increased even more now days due to the addition several more teams in the roster of MLB. This step has not only increased the overall competitiveness of the league, but it also increased the count of the fans, which increases with an addition of a franchise.
At the moment, Major League Baseball comprises of 30 teams, all of which are equipped with talented players in their roster. With highly experienced players in almost all of the teams, the scheduled fixtures during the MLB’s regular season are sure to keep on the edge of your seats. MLB’s regular season kicks off in the month of April on the First Sunday. And after the conclusion of 162 games, its regular season comes to an end by the start of October, provided that there aren’t any tie breakers that are scheduled for the season as well. The season then commences to its final stages by the start of playoffs, which ultimately lead to the World Series Title match.
Apart from the regular season, MLB provides the baseball fans with ample amount of other events to enjoy their favorite sport as well. One example of which is Spring Training. Spring Training began back in 1920s, when all the major league teams started training at the home grounds. But since the weather conditions and most favorable during that time of the year, more and more of the baseball fans started attracting these spring training sessions, hence MLB turned these series of training games in to more organized form of sport.
Another thing that baseball fans look forward to every year is, Major League Baseball All-Star Game. All-Star Game marks the mid (not the actual mid) of the MLB’s regular season. The All-Star Game features all those players that the fans and judges choose altogether both from the American League and the National League.
