MLB Teams by State

Major League Baseball (MLB) was established in 1903 and is the oldest professional sports league in the United States. There are thirty teams in the MLB, divided into the National League (NL) and American League (AL) and further divided into three divisions each: East, Central, and West.

Most states do not have an MLB team; however, there are twenty-nine teams across fifteen states and one team in Canada (Toronto Blue Jays) for a total of thirty teams. California is the state with the most MLB teams: Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants. 

There are six states with two MLB teams: Florida (Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins), Illinois (Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox), Missouri (Kansas city Royals and St. Louis Cardinals), Ohio (Cincinnati Red and Cleveland Guardians), Pennsylvania (Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates), and Texas (Houston Astros and Texas Rangers). There are eight additional states with one MLB team: Colorado (Colorado Rockies), Georgia (Atlanta Braves), Maryland (Baltimore Orioles), Massachusetts (Boston Red Sox), Michigan (Detroit Tigers), Minnesota (Minnesota Twins), Washington (Seattle Mariners), and Wisconsin (Milwaukee Brewers).
