  • The American League East is one of Major League Baseball's six divisions. This division was created before the start of the 1969 season along with the American League West Division. Before that time the American League had existed as a single league of 10 teams. Four of its five teams are located in the Eastern United States, with the other in Central Canada. At the end of the MLB season, the team with the best record in the division earns one of the American League's five playoff spots. The most recent team to win this division was the Baltimore Orioles in 2014. The Toronto Blue Jays remain the only team yet to win the AL East since divisional realignment in 1995 During its 43-year existence, an East Division team has gone on to play in the World Series 25 times, and 14 of those teams have been crowned World Series Champions. Since the 1995 season when the wild-card playoff berth was introduced, the AL East has produced the wild-card team for the American League in 13 out of the 17 years.
