The concept of having two extra teams added in the playoffs in one do-or-die game to advance makes the postseason of the Major League Baseball extra interesting to the fan base.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
The 2012 Wild Card Game of the National League will be played on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. in Atlanta, Georgia between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals. Both teams earned the playoff spot after giving out their best in 162 games in a six-month period. The Braves clinched the wild card spot as a result of the Los Angeles Dodgers' 4-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants.
The American League Will Card Game between The Texas Rangers and the Baltimore Orioles will be played on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 8:37 p.m. at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. It will be a matchup between a team that most people did not predict to reach this point - the Orioles- and a team that let its American League lead slip away - the Rangers.
The result of the wild card games in both the National League and the American League will make both Division Series more interesting.
The concept of having two extra teams added in the playoffs in one do-or-die game to advance makes the postseason of the Major League Baseball extra interesting to the fan base. A wild card team qualifies for the playoffs without winning in its division. Each league in the MLB gives wild-card playoff spot to the two teams with the most wins among the non-playoff teams.
The wild-card concept was introduced in the MLB as a result of the league's expansion to 28 teams and creating three divisions in each league. The situation where there are three teams playing for the league championship was made easy by putting a fourth team - the wild card team. Starting 2012, MLB decided to add a second wild card team in each league.
Both league's wild card teams will play in a one game do-or-die face off to determine who will be playing against the number one seed team in the Division Series.
