MLB Update

A. Hayman
The Mariners are currently second in the American League West division and “They started off pretty solid” says (27)Hunter McLaughlin.

We’re now six weeks or so into the Major League Baseball season. Here’s a quick update of the standings of the whole league. Each team plays 162 games each year. Only twelve teams make it to the post season each year. Teams who win their division automatically go to the playoffs. If two teams end with the same record, then they use tie breakers to decide who advances into the playoffs.
