No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games.  No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games.  It's the other third that makes the difference." Tommy Lasorda

The National League of Professional Baseball Clubs, known simply as the National League (NL), is the older of two leagues constituting Major League Baseball, and the world's oldest extant professional team sports league. Founded on February 2, 1876, to replace the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players, it is sometimes called the Senior Circuit in comparison to the "Junior Circuit" or the American League, established as a major league in 1901. The two league champions of 1903 arranged to meet in the World Series and, after the 1904 champions failed to do likewise, the two leagues have arranged to meet in that annual culmination of the American baseball season, failing to do so only in the strike-shortened 1994 season. National League teams have won 43 and lost 61 of the 104 World Series played between these two leagues from 1903 to 2008. The Philadelphia Phillies are the defending National League champions, winning the NL Pennant in 2008; and are the defending World Series champions, having won the 2008 World Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers lead the National League with 21 National League Titles.
