MLB Playoff Series Prices

It has been a very interesting year for MLB, which was halted by the coronavirus pandemic during spring training and then endured contentious negotiations between the players and owners on what a return to the field would look like.

However, America’s favorite pastime eventually began a shortened 60-game season in mid-July that was followed by our first-ever 16-team MLB playoffs. Now we’ve reached the World Series between the two top seeds, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays.

A couple of positives that came out of the tense negotiations that fans may have enjoyed: the use of a designated hitter in the National League, and an expanded playoff format that offered a greater opportunity for your team to be able to play in October.

The opening wild-card round consisted of best-of-three series, followed by the best-of-five division series and the best-of-seven League Championship Series and World Series.
