In sports, a season is the part of one year that games of that sport are played. For example, in Major League Baseball, one season lasts about from April to September, that is the time of the year that baseball teams play their games.
There are four parts of the season, they are:
- Pre-season - a time that teams often play exhibition games.
- Regular season - the that most of the games are played.
- Post-season (or Playoffs) - the time after the season that teams often have a type of tournament to win a championship.
- Off-season - the time before the season starts that teams prepare for the next season.
