MLB Postseason Schedule: 2018 Playoff Dates, TV Channels Revealed

Major League Baseball has released its 2018 postseason schedule.

MLB revealed Thursday that this year’s playoffs will begin Oct. 2 with the National League Wild Card Game on ESPN and continue Oct. 3 with the American League Wild Card Game on TBS.

The NL Division Series then will begin Oct. 4, with the AL Division Series beginning Oct. 5.

Game 1 of the 2018 World Series is scheduled for Oct. 23. Game 7 of the Fall Classic, if necessary, is scheduled for Oct. 31, meaning there won’t be any November baseball this season unless changes become necessary due to inclement weather or whatever reason.
