How many teams are in the National League?

There are 16 teams in the National League and 14 in the American League. Both leagues are divided into three divisions. The National League has five teams each in the East and West Divisions and six teams in the Central Division. The American League has five teams each in the East and Central Divisions and four teams in the West Division. It seems to make more sense to move one of the National League team, probably Milwaukee that was in the American League, back to the AL and even up the leagues with 15 teams in each league and five teams in each division.

How do you determine what teams go to the playoffs?

I assume this is a question concerning the MLB. There are 2 "leagues" in the MLB- American League (AL) and National League (NL), making a total of 30 teams. The AL has 14 teams, and the NL has 16 teams. Each League has 3 Divisions (West, Central, and East). Each division, at the end of the regular season (162 games) will have a Division winner, which is the team out of each division with the best overall record (all games, not just divisional games). For instance, the NY Yankees are in the AL East, and could be 100-62, which the Boston Red Sox (also AL East) could be 99-62. The Yankees would win the Division. All Division winners are guaranteed the Playoffs. This only provides 3 teams, though, and 4 are needed for a complete bracket. Thus the Wild Card team, which is the team (who did not win its Division) with the next best overall record amongst all League Divisions. Thus 4 teams in the AL Playoffs (AL Division Series (ALDS)) and 4 teams in the NLDS. The four winners of both of the Division Series play in the ALCS and NLCS (Championship Series), and the winners of that play each other in the World Series. Here is what the Bracket would look like: AL Division Winner vs. AL D. Winner, AL D Winner vs. AL Wild Card ALDS winners: play each other in ALCS (same process for National League) ALCS winner vs. NLCS winner in World Series Hope this helps.

How many games do teams play out of division in the MLB?

It depends on the division, in the AL east each of the five teams plays the other four in their division 18 times, for a total of 72 games. So in the AL east they play a total of 90 games outside their division. In divisions with only four teams, they play each other 20 times for a total of 60 in the division and 102 games out. When there are six teams in a division they play a total of 15 games against each of the five other team in their division, for 75 games in and 78 out of their division.

Yes, but not every year. In general, divisional teams play each other twice per season (home and away), and depending on the season play one game with teams from a different, specified division. In this manner, AFC West teams will play AFC East teams if that is the specified division that season.

There are 6 Divisions, National League has 16, while the American League has 14. Here are the Divisions: -NL East(5 Teams) -NL Central(6 Teams) -NL West(5 Teams) -AL East(5 Teams) -AL Central(5 Teams) -AL West(4 Teams)

Why does the AL West only have 4 teams while the NL Central has 6 teams?

If the AL west and NL central both had five teams, that would make an odd number of teams in each league. Therefore, one team would not be able to play a game because there would not be another team in the league to play.

In the Wild Card Races in sports what does 'wild card' mean?

There is one wild card per league (1 for the NL and 1 for the AL) these are the teams with the best record that did not win either the west, central, or east. For Example, if the Angels win the AL West, the White Sox win the AL Central, and the Red Sox win the AL East, the Indians will receive Wild Card who are leading the AL without being in first place. This means that 4 teams make it from the AL and 4 teams make it from the NL.

What is the wild card race?

In baseball the AL and NL each have 3 divisions (East, Central, West) -- those division winners all qualify for the playoffs, then you take all the other teams in the league, whichever team has the best record is the wildcard -- the AL and NL each have 4 teams make the playoffs (3 division winners and the wildcard) -- The wildcard CANNOT play the winner of their division in the 1st round (LDS) -- in the event that 2 or more teams qualify for the wildcard, they will play a 1 game playoff game against each other, the winner of that game will be the wildcard --- the wildcard is the #4 seed regardless of their win-loss record and will play the #1 seed (unless that happens to be a team from their division, in which case they would play the #2 seed in the Division Series) A "wildcard race" references the end of the regular season when teams that do not win their division are going for that #4 seed (the wildcard team) Beginning in the 2012 season, there will always be a one-game playoff, regardless of the records of the competing teams.
