The 2018 Major League Baseball (MLB) promises to be another action-packed extravaganza, culminating with the World Series in October. Last year’s World Series champions, the Houston Astros, will be hoping to defend their crown, but face a lot of competition from clubs who have improved their squads during the break.
The 2017 MLB World Series takes place this week, with the LA Dodgers taking on the Houston Astros. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who have been impressive all season, secured their place to compete for the World Series with a crushing 4-1 National League Championship Series (NLCS) win over the Chicago Cubs.
This weekend sees the Major League Baseball season move in to the League Championship Series, with three teams having already booked their spots after advancing through the Division Series.
This year’s Major League Baseball season has reached the Wild Card and Play-Off games. Safely into the Play-Offs from the American League are winners, the Cleveland Indians, who also won the AL Central Division.
