2021 MLB postseason schedule: Playoff dates, times, more with Wild Card Games set for early October

The MLB regular season is winding down, and we’re just two weeks away from playoff baseball. MLB used a 16-team postseason format during the pandemic-shortened 60-game season a year ago. This season they’re going back to the usual 10-team format, which means the return of the winner-take-all Wild Card Game.

As a reminder, the three division winners in each league advance directly to the League Division Series. The non-division winners with the two best records meet in the Wild Card Game, with the winner advancing to face the team with the league’s best record in the LDS. The LDS is a best-of-five, then the League Championship Series and World Series are both best-of-sevens.

The regular season ends on Sunday, Oct. 3, and here’s the up-to-date MLB playoff picture. Here is the complete 2021 MLB postseason schedule.
