Written by Super User. Posted in Videos

According to some recordings it may be said that the history of baseball begun somewhere around 1846, or at least that is when the first game with rules was recorded. The real baseball craze hit the entire States circa 1850s and that is when the first baseball associations became created, with the creation of the Major Baseball League or MLB soon following in 1869. Nowadays MLB consists of completely thirty professional baseball teams that were first only under the governance of the MLB, but as of this year the league is officially separated into two divisions, namely American League and the National League, each with 15 teams respectively divided into East, Central and West division.

Let us see now which are the teams those two major MLB leagues consist of. When it comes to the American League, the division goes as follows:

• East League comprises: Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays, Toronto Blue Jays

• Central division: Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins

• And the West comprises: Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers Now, the teams of the National league are distributed as follows:

• East division: Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals

• Then the Central: Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals,

• And the West: Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants.

Now that we know the most important facts about the Major Baseball League of America, we can sit back, relax and enjoy the wait for this year´s World Championship Cup that will take the place in October, as usual.

Last year the Commissioner´s Trophy had been won by San Francisco Giants. Which one of those 30 teams it is going to be this year, we will surely need a lot of patience before we find out.

All time stars, Boston Red Sox, have had a couple of great streaks in their games over the last few years. A lot of this is not only because of the team’s spirit and its technique. The wins in all their seasons can also be owed to the strategic positioning that goes into the teams line up. In the recent past, the Boston Red Sox have had a team of strong players who have helped to carry the team to its victories. Below is a brief recall of the history this team has had in its playoffs and some of the best players who have made Boston Red Sox the team that it is today. Boston Red Sox’s all time line up players

In 1999, Pedro Mertinez helped the team to win the CY young of the season. He is ranked alongside Roger Clemens who also won the CY Young and the MVP in 1986. Pedro became in that very year one of the greatest hitters ever recorder in history. The same was experienced in 1977 when a player by the name Jason Vartiek salvaged the team that had a lot of poor catchers. The Hall of Famer had a spectacular career that gave Boston Red Sox a great year in 1977. Afterwards in 2004, he got a championship but he is still remembered for his great play at the 1975 in the World Series game.

Boston Red Sox also made great decision by signing off on Jimmie Fox. The hitter was often referred to back then as ‘The Beast’. He was the start of the MVP season in 1938 where he stunned fans with his remarkable technique. Right after that however in 1944, Bobby Doerr played his best right before he went to serve in the war. He played alongside his teammatePedoria and the two gave the team their best. These are definitely among Boston Red Sox’s all time players.
