Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
Now that Spring has sprung, America’s favorite pastime appears to be back in full swing as well.
The 2013 MLB Baseball season officially began on March 31 with a Sunday night game between the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros. Opening Day for most clubs was the following Monday, April 1.
This year’s 162-game season, split equally between home and away games for each of MLB’s 30 squads, is scheduled to end on Sunday, September 29.
Roughly 12 to 13 games into the season, that leaves about 150 games for each franchise, adding up to a total of 2,250 games yet to be played in the 2,430-game regular season. This doesn’t count the 20 or so more games a team might play in the postseason.
At the current time, the sport’s top trending teams, based upon the volume of ticket search hits online, are: The Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants (the defending World Series champs), Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Detroit tigers, Milwaukee Brewers, Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles.
Other top trending teams include the Colorado Rockies, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays.

Originating in 1869, Major League Baseball or MLB constitutes one of the major professional sports leagues of the United States and Canada. It is made up of 30 teams—29 in the United States and one in Canada. With the International Baseball Federation, MLB also manages the World Baseball Classic.
The sport consists of teams that play in the American League and the National League. After 100 years as separate legal entities, the two leagues merged in 2000 to become a single organization led by the Commissioner of Baseball.
The 2013 season is the first with the Houston Astros as a member of the American League (AL) in the West Division. This represents the first addition to the number of American League teams since the 1997 expansion. As both leagues now have 15 teams, inter-league games will be played throughout the season for the first time in the league's history.
