Major League Baseball (MLB) is a professional baseball organization and the oldest major professional sports league in the world. As of 2022, a total of 30 teams play in Major League Baseball—15 teams in the National League (NL) and 15 in the American League (AL)—with 29 in the United States and 1 in Canada.
It was in 1876 that the NL and AL were founded. Both leagues agreed to work together under the National Agreement in 1903 and continued to do so until they amalgamated in 2000 under the leadership of the Commissioner of Baseball. Midtown Manhattan is where Major League Baseball is based.
In 1869, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, baseball’s first professional team, was established. Before that, several teams have surreptitiously compensated players for their services.
The first few decades of professional baseball were marked by fierce rivalry between leagues and by players who frequently switched teams or leagues.
Home runs were scarce during the dead-ball era before to 1920. In the aftermath of the Black Sox Scandal, professional baseball in the United States survived.
The sport’s popularity grew throughout the Roaring Twenties and continued to grow throughout the Great Depression and World War II. Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball shortly after World War II.
