Year In Review : 2013 National League

O ff the field...

On July 1st, Croatia joined the European Union as the Union's 28th member. Croatia was the first country that entered the EU alone (since other countries entered together in 2004 and 2007), although Greece acceded to the European Community alone in 1981.

I n the American League...

The 1962 Houston Colt .45s changed their name to the Houston Astros in 1965, and starting in 2013, they changed from the National League to the American League.

I n the National League...

The Cincinnati Reds hosted the Los Angeles Angels on April 1, 2013, becoming the first teams to start their seasons with an interleague matchup. The Reds, the first professional team, celebrate Opening Day with a parade and have opened all but four seasons at home.

A round the League...

The results of the Baseball Writers' Association of America balloting for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum were announced in January and the first full set of Steroid Era players saw the impact playing at this time period had on their game.

The 109th World Series, starting Wednesday in Boston, pits the 97-win Red Sox against the 97-win St. Louis Cardinals, the first time since 1999 each league is represented by teams with its best records. And these are two franchises loaded with tradition, smarts, resources and passionate - some might say entitled - fan bases. So who has the edge? USA TODAY Sports' Bob Nightengale and Paul White make the case for each pennant winner: The Cardinals will win because..." - USA Today Writer Bob Nightengale (10/21/2013, Why the St. Louis Cardinals will win the World Series , Source )
