Intertops Offer: MLB 2019 NL Central to Win Outright
The National League of Professional Baseball Clubs, or simply the National League (NL), is the older of two leagues constituting Major League Baseball (MLB) in the United States and Canada, as well as the oldest current professional team sports league in the world.
The National League Central is one of the six divisions of the Major League Baseball. Created back in 1994, by moving the Cincinnati Reds and the Houston Astros from the National League West, and the Chicago Cubs, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the St. Louis Cardinals from the National League East. In the meantime, the Astros moved to the American League West in 2013, while the Milwaukee Brewers joined in 1998.
Many predict this year will see a three-team battle for the division crown. The Chicago Cubs, the St Louis Cardinals – the team who won the most NL Central titles, and the last year’s winners, the Milwaukee Brewers, will most likely decide who’ll be the division’s best team. The Cincinnati Reds haven’t won the division since 2012, while the Pittsburgh Pirates have never managed to win the NL Central.
Don’t miss out on this great offer! Just head over to Intertops and pick your winner, and prepare for a season full of excitement and action. C’mon, what are you waiting for!
