New York, NY
Major League Baseball is looking at tweaking the schedule for the 2013 season and beyond that could end home-and-home series between natural rivals.
According to a report, home-and-home, six-game series between teams like the Mets and Yankees could be eliminated.
ESPNNewYork.com cited baseball sources in its report that said with the Houston Astros moving to the American League West next season, natural rivals will be guaranteed six games a season and home-and-home series.
Sources said that the 2013 Major League Baseball schedule is still being discussed and nothing has been finalized.
The Mets and Yankees have played three games in both the Bronx and Queens every season since 1999.
The teams will continue to play six games a season every three years when the AL East and NL East line up for long-form interleague play.
Since interleague play began in 1997, the Yankees lead the series against the Mets, 49-35.
