3  The ( MLB ) or Major League baseball is separated into two groups.  There is an American League and a National League.  When the American League and the National League play each other it is known as a rivalry game.  An example of this is the New York Yankees vs. the Boston Red Sox. AMERICAN LEAGUE VS. NATIONAL LEAGUE

4  The main difference in the American League and the National League is that, “American League uses the designated hitter rule to replace pitchers during at- bats, and the National League does not.” ( Brinson ) New York Yankees designated hitter, Travis Hafner.

5 AMERICAN LEAGUE  “ The American League was created by Ban Johnson.” ( Google )  The American League was created after the National League.  “ This League was created because the National League was so successful.” ( Brinson )

6 AMERICAN LEAGUE  The American League has a tenth player unlike the National League.  “ This extra player, called the designated hitter ( DH ), bats in place of the pitcher.” ( World Book ) Ban Johnson the creator of the American League.

7  “ The National League was formed in 1876, is the older of the two leagues that make up the professional Major League Baseball organization in the United States and Canada.” ( Brinson )  Unlike the American League the National League does not use a designated hitter.

8  “The National League was formed by Albert Goodwill Spalding and William Hulbert.” (Google) Albert Spalding the creator of the National League William Hulbert the creator of the National League

9 CONCLUSION  The baseball Leagues have had a good impact on people because it gives them something to look forward to and enjoy. These Leagues also opens up many jobs for the unemployed. I still wonder what persuaded Albert Goodwill Spalding and William Hulbert to create the National League.
