Major League Baseball Champions

The Major League Baseball playoffs leading up to the World Series have become difficult for some of us to follow. First we have the “wild card” play in, the Division Series, the League Championships and finally, the World Series. Back when I was a kid, there were only 8 teams in each league and the league winners went to the World Series. It was often the Yankees vs the Dodgers (in Brooklyn). I came across this bracket to help me keep track of the current games. I have written the score of each game and circled the winner. The only team to reach the Division Series is the Chicago Cubs who won their 3rd game tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. By the time this is read, the Met’s and Dodger’s game will be over, if the Mets win, they will play the Cubs. If the Dodger’s win tonight, they will need another game to determine who plays the Cubs. In the American League, the 2 teams playing in the Division Series will be determined tomorrow with all 4 teams having already won 2 of the necessary 3 games. My loyalties have evolved over the years from the Chicago Cubs>New York Yankees> Kansas City Royals. There is a story involved with each change. Having seen games in all 30 of the current Major League Parks, I will be familiar with the park where ever the World Series is played.

  1. The Dodgers just beat the Mets 3-1 so they go back to LA and play on Thursday to determine which team plays the Cubs.
