MLB releases postseason schedule

Get ready for a few days of buildup between the end of the regular season and the start of the AL Division Series. Major League Baseball has released its schedule for the postseason, and both AL Division Series will run on the same days. Thus, if the Tigers get the first or second seed in the AL playoffs, they’ll have home games Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5, plus Game 5 if necessary on Oct. 10.

The ALCS begins Saturday, Oct. 12 and runs potentially through Sunday, Oct. 20. The World Series begins in the American League city on Wednesday, Oct. 23. It will end before November, with a potential Game 7 on Halloween.
