In a Major League Baseball (MLB) regular season, each team plays a total of 162 games. This schedule is typically played over a six-month period from late March or early April to late September or early October.
The MLB regular season typically starts at the end of March or the beginning of April and runs through late September or early October. Each team plays a total of 162 games during this time period, with games played almost every day of the week, including weekends and holidays.
The regular season schedule is broken down into series, where teams play a set number of games against each other, usually between two and four games per series. During the regular season, each team plays 19 games against each of the other four teams in their division, and a varying number of games against teams from other divisions in their league.
The regular season schedule is designed to determine the teams with the best records in each division, who then advance to the playoffs. The playoffs consist of three rounds of best-of-five or best-of-seven series, culminating in the World Series, which is a best-of-seven series between the champions of the National League and the American League.
In addition to the regular season and playoffs, MLB teams also participate in spring training, which takes place in February and March, and the All-Star Game, which is typically held in July and features the best players from each league.
