The 2022 Major League Baseball playoffs continue Wednesday night as the Houston Astros and New York Yankees open up the ALCS with Game 1 in Texas. It’s the third meeting between the teams in the ALCS in the last six years. In the National League, things are even heading to Game 3 between the Padres and Phillies. San Diego won Game 2 at home on Wednesday afternoon to make it 1-1 heading to Philadelphia for Game 3 on Friday.

This is the largest playoff field ever for a full, 162-game season, and you can read more on the new format here. Eight teams — the Guardians, Dodgers, Braves, Mariners, Mets, Cardinals, Blue Jays and Rays — have been eliminated in the first two rounds. The Dodgers, Braves and Mets all won at least 100 games this year, but none of them won a single series in the postseason.

The 2022 MLB postseason will stretch beyond October. Game 4 of the 2022 World Series is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1, so that is a guaranteed date. Game 7 of the World Series is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 5. It would be the latest World Series game in MLB history. Because the first week of the regular season was postponed due to the owners’ lockout, each team had three makeup games added to the end of their schedule. 

Here are some other things to know about this year’s postseason schedule:

  • The best-of-three Wild Card Series will be played on three consecutive days. There is no off-day within the series.
  • There are no off days between Games 4 and 5 of the LDS, or between Games 5 and 6 of the LCS. Travel could be a nightmare should teams on opposite coasts meet.
  • The World Series follows the usual 2-3-2 format with off-days between Games 2 and 3, and Games 5 and 6.
