The 1992 Major League Baseball season saw the Toronto Blue Jays defeat the Atlanta Braves in the World Series, becoming the first team outside the United States to win the World Series.

A resurgence in pitching dominance occurred during this season. On average, one out of every seven games pitched that season was a shutout; in 2,106 MLB regular-season games, 298 shutouts were pitched (up from 272 in 2,104 regular-season games in 1991).[1][2] Two teams pitched at least 20 shutouts each; the Atlanta Braves led the Majors with 24 and the Pittsburgh Pirates finished second with 20. In the National League, no team hit more than 138 home runs and no team scored 700 runs. The San Francisco Giants were shut out 18 times, the most in the Majors.[3][4] The effect was similar in the American League. In 1991, two AL teams had scored at least 800 runs and three had collected 1,500 hits.[5] In 1992, no team scored 800 runs and only one reached 1,500 hits.[6] The California Angels were shut out 15 times, the most in the AL.[7]
