We've just marked the 25th anniversary of the first interleague game played (that is, interleague game not played in October). The 1997 season introduced it to Major League Baseball.

Oh, yes, back in the days when it was only a couple of weeks a year and they were in June and July. When other teams were playing their "natural" rivals we always got scheduled against the Mariners. I guess because both are west coast teams that share the same Cactus League facility!

Even after 25 years I have not really gotten used to it as permanent. I would rather play more games against the other NL divisions than against the AL.
