Major League Baseball (abbreviated as MLB) is the professional baseball league of the United States and Canada. Founded in 1903, it is the oldest of the major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. A total of thirty teams play in Major League Baseball: fifteen teams in the National League and fifteen in the American League.
In Relation to American Girl
Starting in the early 2000s, American Girl gave away doll-sized uniforms and other clothing items at select home games for the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees. In the 2010s, the uniforms were changed to simple v-neck or raglan-style shirts, and the teams were changed to the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners and St. Louis Cardinals. American Girl mostly partnered with teams near American Girl Place stores.
Kit's Reds Fan Outfit can also be considered an official MLB tie-in, as permission would have been needed to use the Reds logo on her hat and jersey.
