National League pennant winners 1901-68

The National League (NL) is one of the two leagues of Major League Baseball. The team with the highest winning percentage in the league won the pennant and faced the American League pennant winner in the World Series (in 1903 and 1905-1968).

In 1969, the league split into East and West divisions, and the two division winners played in the National League Championship Series to determine the league champion who would then face the American League champion in the World Series. For NL Pennant winners from 1876-1900 see 19th century National League teams.
