MLB expands playoff format from 8 teams to 10
Major League Baseball widens postseason field from 8 teams to 10; 1-game playoff for wild card
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Major League Baseball is expanding its playoff format to 10 teams.

MLB announced the move Friday, adding two clubs to the postseason format.

A second wild-card team now will be included in each league. There then will be a one-game playoff to decide which team advances.



Commissioner Bud Selig says the change "increases the rewards of a division championship and allows two additional markets to experience playoff baseball each year."

This is the first change in baseball's playoff structure since the 1995 season, when wild-card teams were first added.
