This article is about the 1976 Major League Baseball season only. For information on all of baseball, see 1976 in baseball.
The 1976 Major League Baseball season was the last season in which both the AL and the NL had the same number of teams until 1993. The season ended with the Cincinnati Reds taking the World Series Championship for the second consecutive season by sweeping the New York Yankees in four games. It would be the Reds' last title until Lou Piniella guided the club in 1990, and the second time that the Yankees were swept in World Series history. The only team to do it previously was the 1963 Los Angeles Dodgers.
