Sportsbook Insiders explains ‘National League’

The National League is one of two major leagues in baseball, which is made up of 16 teams. Each year, teams compete in the NL for the right to represent the league in the World Series, which matches the top team in the NL versus the top team in the AL.

One of the main differences between the AL and the NL is the designated hitter. In the AL, teams are allowed to use a designated hitter in the lineup, who is allowed to solely take at-bats and hit without playing a position in the field. In the NL, the pitcher takes that spot in the batting lineup and is forced to hit. Since the pitcher is a weaker hitter than the designated hitter, it tends to lead to less offense in the NL compared to in the AL.

The NL is comprised of the following teams:

Arizona Diamondbacks

Atlanta Braves

Chicago Cubs

Cincinnati Reds

Colorado Rockies

Florida Marlins

Houston Astros

Los Angeles Dodgers

Milwaukee Brewers

New York Mets

Philadelphia Phillies

Pittsburgh Pirates

San Diego Padres

San Francisco Giants

St. Louis Cardinals
