Having now agreed with the MLB Players Association on the plans for the postseason - plans aimed at doing the best the league can to get through the postseason uninterrupted by a COVID-19 outbreak - MLB today announced what's up. As MLB's official announcement notes, it will be the "first neutral site Fall Classic in modern history".

Firstly, as rumored, the initial round of the postseason (three-game set) will take place at the home ballpark of the higher seed.

San Diego will host the ALDS featuring the winners of the 1/8 and 4/5 Wild Card Series, while Los Angeles will host the 2/7 and 3/6 series winners.

The World Series begins October 20 in Arlington on Fox.

The World Series will begin October 20, with all games in Arlington at the Rangers' Globe Life Field. The best-of-seven AL Championship series will be held in San Diego. Those first-round series will take place at the home field of the top four seeds in each league, beginning September 29 or September 30. The National League Division Series will be held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, and at Minute Maid Park in Houston. Those series will take place from October 5-9. Game 7, if necessary, is on October 28. The NLCS will be played at Globe Life Field from October 12-18. Those games are slated for October 6-10.

One particularly noteworthy detail: there will be no days off from the Wild Card Series through the Championship Series. There will be off days after Games 2 and 5 of the World Series.
