The American League East (AL East) is one of six divisions in Major League Baseball. It is often referred to as the toughest division in the MLB. Five teams currently play in the AL East:
The AL East was created in 1969, together with the AL West. Before that season, both the American League and the National League consisted of ten teams which were not part of separate divisions.
Three of today’s teams (Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees) have been part of the AL East since its inception. The Toronto Blue Jays were added to the AL East as an expansion team in 1977. Another expansion team joined the AL East in 1998 when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (later renamed as Tampa Bay Rays) became part of the MLB.
The Tampa Bay Rays are the reigning American League East champions. The team ended the 2021 season with a 100-62 record and won the AL East for the fourth time. In the Division Series, the team was then eliminated by the Boston Red Sox.
