It’s been an odd year to say the least, but the 2020 baseball season will close with at least some semblance of normalcy. After Covid-19 nearly derailed the regular season, MLB has made it to the Fall Classic. An expanded playoff is coming to a close as the 2020 World Series is just around the corner.
The World Series participants are still being sorted out, but once they are determined, the best-of-seven series will get underway. This year’s World Series is being played at a neutral site, with Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas playing host. The series get started on Tuesday, October 20th with the higher seed serving as the “home” team in Games 1 and 2. The lower seed will be home in Games 3, 4, and 5, and the higher seed will be the home team for Games 6 and 7 if necessary.
