The National League Central Division is made up of four long-time NL franchises (the Chicago Cubs, the Cincinnati Reds, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the St. Louis Cardinals), plus two franchises that were formed in the 1960′s (the Houston Astros, and the Milwaukee Brewers (who were originally the Seattle Pilots)).
The Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis ball clubs all date back to the nineteenth century. The Chicago Cubs are the only charter member of the National League (established 1876) that has remained in the same city, continuously.
