The 2020 MLB Postseason Schedule has been released, and Globe Life Field will be hosting an NLDS series, an NLCS series, and the World Series, which would be more exciting if the Texas Rangers were participating in any of those, but hey, beggers, choosers, all that.

The first round of games will be best of three series that will be played at the home park of the higher seeded team, with no off days. Starting with the division series, games will shift to Arlington and Houston (for National League teams) and San Diego and Los Angeles (for American League teams).

The A.L. first round series will start on September 29 — two days after the regular season ends — while the N.L. will start their first round on September 30.

Monday, October 5, the ALDS will start, with the winner of the series featuring the #1 and #8 seeds in the A.L. playing the winner of the #4/#5 series in San Diego, and the 2/7 winner playing the 3/6 winner in Los Angeles. This will be a best of five series with no off days.

Tuesday, October 6, the NLDS will start. Arlington will host the winners of the 1/8 and 4/5 first round series, while Houston will host the winners of the 2/7 and 3/6 series. As with the American League, this will be a best of five series with no off days.

The League Championship Series will take place in San Diego, starting on October 11, for the American League, and in Arlington, starting on October 12, for the National League. This will be a best of seven with no off days.

The World Series will then take place in Arlington as a best of seven series with off days after game two and game five.
