The 2020 MLB Playoffs get started on Tuesday, and early this morning Major League Baseball announced the full list of umpires and the specific crews for each series. The 1B umpire moves to home plate in Game 2 and the 2B umpire moves to home plate in any necessary Game 3s.
The American League begins play on Tuesday and run through Thursday, while the National League begins play on Wednesday and runs through Friday. The higher seed is hosting all three games, so there will be no in-series traveling. When the playoffs move to the division round, games will be hosted at neutral sites in California and Texas to reduce travel.
As you prepare your wagering and DFS lineup decisions for the playoffs, make sure and check your umpire stats to be ready.
