Major League Baseball announced its postseason schedule today, including the date for the opening game of the American League Division Series. That one may especially interest you. The AL Wild Card game is scheduled for Sept. 30 on TBS, followed by the NL Wild Card game that airs on ESPN on Oct. 1. This is the first time that ESPN will be part of baseball's postseason telecasts since 2006. Should the Orioles win the AL East, they would host Game 1 of the Division Series on Oct. 2. In fact, both AL Division Series games air that day, with times to be announced. TBS will handle the coverage. The AL Division Series runs from Oct. 2 through Oct. 8. The AL Championship Series begins on Friday, Oct. 10 on TBS. The NLCS starts the following day. A potential Game 7 of the ALCS would be played Saturday, Oct. 18, while the NLCS clincher is scheduled for the following day. Game 1 of the 2014 World Series is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 21, to be hosted by the American League city. This marks the first time that the World Series will start on a day other than Wednesday since 2006. The World Series hasn't started on a Tuesday since 1990. MLB also announced that the postseason schedule has been shortened by one day, removing one of the two off days that had been situated between the last potential LCS game and the first game of the World Series. The Fall Classic will shift to the ballpark of the National League Champions for Game 3 on Friday, October 24. A Game 7, if necessary, would be played on Wednesday, October 29 in the AL city. FOX Sports will air the World Series for the 17th time. The scheduled off days are Thursday, Oct. 23 and Monday, Oct. 27. Cal Ripken Jr. will again serve as an analyst on TBS. Here is the full postseason schedule.
