Major League Baseball’s American League West is the only division with just 4 teams in it (four of the other five MLB divisions have 5 teams, and the National League Central has 6 teams).

The division comprises the Los Angeles Angels {click here, for photos and club history};  the Oakland Athletics {click here, for photos and club history};  the Seattle Mariners {click here, for photos and club history};  and the Texas Rangers {click here, for photos and club history}.                                    [These links are to the Sports E-cyclopedia site.]

The Oakland A’s franchise began in 1901, as the Philadelphia Athletics, a founding member of the American League {click here, for photos and club history}.  The Athletics franchise moved to Kansas City, Missouri in 1955 {click here, for photos and club history};  and Oakland, California, in 1968.
