Stadium construction

Between March 2012, when Marlins Park was completed, and September 2014, there were no major league baseball stadiums under construction. It was the first time since September 1986 that this situation existed. But in light of the recent groundbreaking on the future home of the Braves, the table that had been removed from this space is being restored.

See explanatory notes at bottom. Due to the coronavirus, there will be an additional three-game first round in 2020, including the second-place teams in each division as well as two wild card teams based on their regular-season winning percentage. All sixteen teams that qualify for the postseason will play in the first round, with the three division leaders being seeded highest in each league. In the first round, the higher-seeded team will have home field advantage for all three games, after which all postseason games will be played at the neutral sites which are listed on the left side of the respective series matchups. Since no travel will occur during any series, there will be no rest days, and no fans other than family members will be allowed to attend the games. To help clarify the complex matchup arrangements, the seed numbers are indicated in RED.

Explanatory notes

(Regular season winning percentages in parentheses.) Boldfaced scores indicate the winning team. Underlined scores denote extra-inning games. Olive-shaded score boxes denote games won by the VISITING team. Higher-seeded teams (those with the initial home field advantage) are shown on the BOTTOM side in each matchup. However, beginning with 2012, each league has TWO wild card teams, competing in a one-game "play-in," and whichever of those two teams that wins in each league is displayed below (after the outcome is known), so as to properly align with the subsequent divisional series scores. Beginning in 2003 and continuing through 2016, the league that won the All Star Game got the initial home field advantage in the World Series; prior to 2003, initial home field advantage in the World Series alternated from year to year. Except for 2002 (the infamous tie), the American League won the All Star Game every year between 1997 and 2009. Beginning in 2017, home field advantage in the World Series goes to the team with the higher regular season winning percentage.
