A brief history of the MLB
Major League Baseball is the oldest professional sports league in the USA and is made up of the American League and National League. Its formation dates back to 1869 when the first team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, was the first club to declare themselves as professional and a further twelve clubs also declared themselves professional. It has been going strong ever since.
The most successful MLB teams
When you think of the MLB there is always one team that immediately springs to mind - The New York Yankees. The Yankees are far and away the most successful baseball team of all time, with an impressive twenty-seven World Series titles.
Far behind in second-place are the Louis Cardinals who have eleven to their name. The San Fransico Giants and Boston Red Sox can both lay claim to an impressive eight World Series. Yet it seems unlikely that the Yankees will be caught up anytime soon.
After winning their first World Series since 1908 the Chicago Cubs were hotly tipped as being the team-to-watch in 2017. Yet there are many others that its worth keeping an eye on, such as The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers.
With teams playing one-hundred and sixty-two games each season, there are plenty of opportunities to catch one live and in person – and there is no better game to see than one of the thirty-six played in the World Series. So what are you waiting for? Get your MLB tickets now at StubHub!
