How many National League teams did Nolan Ryan play for in his career?
Two, the New York Mets (1966, 1968-1971) and the Houston Astros (1980-1988).
There are 16 teams in the National League and 14 in the American League. Both leagues are divided into three divisions. The National League has five teams each in the East and West Divisions and six teams in the Central Division. The American League has five teams each in the East and Central Divisions and four teams in the West Division. It seems to make more sense to move one of the National League team…
Who was the only person elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame without having played in the National Football League?
Starting in 2013 there will be 15 teams in each league (currently there are 16 in the National League and 14 in the American League but Houston will be moving to the AL starting next year). Because there are an odd number of teams, there will always be one team from each league that will have to play outside their league.
Major League Baseball (MLB) teams are divided between National and American League. Within these leagues, teams are further divided into divisions: East, Central, and West; therefore, in total, there are six (6) divisions (or "conferences") in MLB, including National League East, National League Central, National League West, American League East, American League Central, and American League West teams.
The National Football League has 32 franchises. Major League Baseball has 30 teams, with one team in Canada. The National Basketball Association, like MLB, has 30 clubs, with one in Toronto. There are 30 teams in the National Hockey League, but seven are in Canada. Currently, Major League Soccer has 16 U.S. teams and another three reside in Canada.
