Major League Baseball - Wikipedia (352 words)

Some researchers contend that the National Association[?] (1871-1875), the Negro Leagues (primarily during the years from 1921-1946), and the first year of the American League (1900) deserve consideration as major leagues due to the caliber of player and the level of play exhibited.
National League Championship Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (272 words)
A structured playoff series began in 1969, when both the National and American Leagues were reorganized into two divisions each, East and West.
In 1981, a divisional series was held due to split-season caused by strike action.
In 1994, the league was restructured into three divisions, with the three division winners and a wild-card team advancing to a best-of-five playoff round, the National League Division Series (NLDS).
