For the first time in MLB history, the Wild Card round has expanded to a 16-team, best-of-three series format, which is modified from the traditional four-team, single-game playoff structure which began in 2012.

This new format, created specifically for the 2020 Postseason, features the top eight teams in each league and will be played at the home ballparks of each league’s top four seeds.

The inaugural Wild Card Series presented by Hankook led off with the American League Sept. 29 and the National League following on Sept. 30. All eight series are presented by Hankook and will be televised exclusively in the U.S. by ESPN and TBS.

Hankook Tire has been the presenting sponsor of the American League and National League Wild Card Games since its partnership with MLB began in 2018.
