For a long time, interleague play was nothing more than a novel idea.
The American and National Leagues met twice a year: once for the All-Star Game and once for the World Series. Major League Baseball introduced interleague play in 1997 for a certain number of games every season, which was typically limited to a three week span early in the year.
Now, it’s spread out throughout the season, as evidenced by this week’s Boston Red Sox series in San Diego against the Padres.
But should interleague play take play during the final month of the season during pennant races and with expanded rosters? That was the subject of our Dunkin’ Donuts poll question Tuesday night.
