The Major League Baseball playoffs are at the end of baseball’s regular season, and this begins the 2021 MLB postseason.

FEATURED STORIES

The playoffs get one team in the National League and one in the American League to play for the World Series championship.

Ten teams are in the playoffs. These are the top teams of each division in each league.

It starts with the American League and National League wild-card games, one game for each. The winner automatically advances to the League Division Series to play the top seed in their league.

The New York Yankees played the Boston Red Sox. On October 6th, the Los Angeles Dodgers played the Cardinals.

After the wild card games, there are the league division games, and these games are the best of five series.

The top-ranked team will go up against the wild card winner, and the other two division winners will go against one another. Then whoever wins the two series for each league goes to the World Series.

The World Series is the best of seven set up. This season’s MLB playoffs were some of the most exciting playoffs in quite some time. If you missed the playoffs, we have a recap for you.

After the wild card games were played, the playoffs began. In the ALDS games, the teams were the Houston Astros versus the Chicago White Sox.

The Astros vs. White Sox games two was covered by MLB Network, while the other games were on Fox Sports.

The other ALDS games were played by the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox. One thing about Boston and Fenway Park is that when the Red Sox are at home, they’re almost unstoppable.

In the NLDS games, the Atlanta Braves played the Brewers. The Giants and the Dodgers played in the other NLDS. The winner overall of these four teams eventually goes to the NLCS game.

Once these games were played, the playoff field grew smaller. Then the playoffs were the Red Sox Astros against one another.

The Braves and the Dodgers met up for the second playoff matchup at Truist Park.

After the Braves won at Truist Park, they went to Dodger Stadium, where they continued to shine.

The Astros won the American League playoffs, which led them to where they are now, in the World Series, against the Atlanta Braves.

Before the playoffs began, there were a lot of injury updates, and some players were iffy as to whether or not they would return to the game this season. Some of the best teams worked very hard to get where they are today.

The Braves and Astros are two of the best teams in baseball, and we are going to highlight some of the players this season that were also awesome and players to watch in seasons to come.
