Less than six weeks remain in the regular season, bringing about the 2016 MLB playoff schedule.
As the clock winds down on the 2016 MLB regular season, the time comes where the league releases dates, times, and television listings for the forthcoming playoffs.
Today, major league baseball took it to their PR account on Twitter to inform everyone of this year’s look for October baseball:

Being that the regular season ends in early October, the respective Wild Card games will take place a few days later, pushing everything back ever so slightly.
This year, TBS and ESPN will be the carriers of the AL and NL wild card games with FS1 coming into the fold for one section of the Division Series broadcasts once again. This year, FOX or FS1 — dependent on the network’s programming availability — will carry the NLCS while TBS handles the ALCS.
Ultimately, as per usual, FOX will carry the Fall Classic. If the 112th World Series reaches a sixth or seventh game, there will be November baseball here in 2016.
Simply put, there is a lot to look forward to as a baseball fan.
