The 60 game sprint to the postseason is complete, and now fans are ready for a month of playoff baseball. No, the Tigers didn’t make the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy America’s pastime. There are still plenty of exciting teams including the Dodgers, Padres and Rays.

The opening round begins tomorrow with the Wild Card series. All 16 teams will compete in a best of three games series. Every game will be played at the higher seeds’ home stadium. 

The American League matchups are Rays vs Blue Jays, Indians vs Yankees, Twins vs Astros and A’s vs White Sox. All four series’ will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week.

The National League features the Dodgers vs Brewers, Padres vs Cardinals, Cubs vs Marlins and Braves vs Reds. These matchups will be on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.

The winners of each Wild Card series will advance to the Divisional series. This round is the best of five games.

The ALDS will be October 5th to October 9th, and will be played in Southern California at Dodger Stadium and Petco Park.

The NLDS will play their games from October 6th to October 10th at Minute Maid Park and Globe Life Field. Both stadiums are located in Texas.

The next round, the League Championship Series will be played from October 11th to October 18th, and it is best of seven games. The AL will play at Petco Park in San Diego. The NL will play at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

The final round, the World Series, will also be the best of seven games. It will be played in Arlington, Texas at Globe Life Field. The “fall classic” as it’s known will take place from October 20th to October 28th. 

This MLB season is not the same as years past, but a champion will still be crowned this fall.
