Major League Baseball’s playoffs are scheduled to begin Tuesday with the American League wild card game, followed the next day with the National League wild card battle.

The World Series is scheduled to begin Oct. 24. If necessary, Game 7 is scheduled Nov. 1, falling into an unusual month for the sixth time.  

With the All-Star Game no longer determining who has home field advantage, the Series will start at the home of the pennant winner with the better regular season record.
