To begin we will post season standings from 2015 and work backwards, while updating the present when a new season of play has been completed. We will be posting each Major League’s season in order of the championship played within the calendar year. For 2015 and the recent history of standings, we will start each year with the NFL (championship in February), followed by the NHL and NBA (championships in June), and then the MLB (championships in October).
Stay tuned as we add seasonal standings for each of the four major leagues, then track how the leagues and cities fare with each other.
