There are 32 teams in Major League Baseball and they are divided equally with 15 teams into different conferences, which are called the American League and National League. The two leagues are more commonly known as the AL and NL. Each league is made up of three divisions with five teams in each group.

MLB American League Teams

Not a lot of traveling when these five teams get together as all of them are located in the Northeast part of the United States while the Toronto Blue Jays are just a short trip to Canada. The Blue Jays are the only MLB American League Team playing outside of the U.S. The largest rivalry among all MLB Teams takes place in this division and it’s between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

East Division

  • Baltimore Orioles
  • Boston Red Sox
  • New York Yankees
  • Tampa Bay Rays
  • Toronto Blue Jays

Central Division

Lot of history in this group and a lot of winners too as all five teams have one at least two World Series titles in their franchise history. The last team out of this five to do so was the Kansas City Royals, who were world champions in 2015.

  • Chicago White Sox
  • Cleveland Indians
  • Detroit Tigers
  • Kansas City Royals
  • Minnesota Twins

West Division

This group has two teams located in both California and Texas while the Seattle Mariners are based out of Washington. The Pacific Time Zone is used for the West Coast trip while the Lone Star State teams play in the Central Time Zone. Seattle plays at T-Mobile Park and that facility has a retractable roof that is used to deter inclement weather.

  • Houston Astros
  • Los Angeles Angels
  • Oakland Athletics
  • Seattle Mariners
  • Texas Rangers

MLB National League Teams

East Division

The NL East has all five teams located on the East Coast and three teams reside in the Northeast part of the United States while the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins are located in the Southeast portion. The Mets and Phillies have the most history in this division while the Marlins switched from Florida to Miami in the 2012 regular season after a stadium move. Marlins Park is one of six retractable roof venues in the MLB.

The Nationals have been in Washington since 2005 and they were the Montreal Expos prior to that move.

  • Atlanta Braves
  • Miami Marlins
  • New York Mets
  • Philadelphia Phillies
  • Washington Nationals

Central Division

The Cubs, Brewers and Cardinals all play in the Central Time Zone while the Reds and Pirates reside in the Eastern Time Zone. This group has some great rivalry matchups and the Cubs are involved in two of them against the Cardinals and Brewers.

  • Chicago Cubs
  • Cincinnati Reds
  • Milwaukee Brewers
  • Pittsburgh Pirates
  • St. Louis Cardinals

West Division

Three of the five teams in this division are located in California and all play in the Pacific Time Zone. Arizona and Colorado are on Mountain Time Zone for most of the summer. The Diamondbacks have the option of playing indoor or outdoor as their venue of Chase Field has a retractable roof, which comes in handy during the hot summer months.

  • Arizona Diamondbacks
  • Colorado Rockies
  • Los Angeles Dodgers
  • San Diego Padres
  • San Francisco Giants
