Introduction: Major League Baseball

The oldest of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada is that of baseball. Today it is organized under the direction of the "Major League Baseball" organization, or MLB. It is divided into two "leagues". A total of 30 teams play in the National League (NL) and American League (AL), with 15 teams in each league divided into three conferences. The NL is the oldest, started in 1876, and AL was started in 1901. The first professional team, or franchise, was started in Cincinnati in 1869. Before that time there were some unorganized teams and local leagues, with some players paid under the table, some not, but certainly nothing official or professional. During this time there were no contracts and players often jumped from one team or league to another.
