How does MLB Wild Card work 2023?

The MLB Wild Card format for 2023 introduces an exciting twist to the postseason. In this new format, the two wild card teams from each league would play against one another in a single-elimination wild card game. This game will determine which team advances to the Division Series.

The Wild Card round will be conducted in a best-of-three format, with the winners advancing to the Division Series. This means that the team that wins two out of three games will move forward in the playoffs. This format adds an extra layer of competitiveness and unpredictability to the postseason, as teams will have to bring their best performance to secure a spot in the next round.

To qualify for the Wild Card game, teams will need to have one of the two best records in their respective leagues among non-division winners. In other words, these are the teams that narrowly missed out on winning their divisions but still performed well enough to earn a shot at the playoffs.

Determining which teams will face off in the Wild Card game is based on overall winning percentage. The team with the better winning percentage will host the game, providing them with a home-field advantage. This adds an extra incentive for teams to perform well throughout the regular season and secure a higher winning percentage.

The Wild Card game itself is a single-elimination match, meaning that the losing team is immediately eliminated from the playoffs. This high-stakes environment adds an intense and thrilling atmosphere to the game, as teams must give their all to stay alive in the postseason.

The winner of the Wild Card game will then move on to the Division Series. This is where the playoff format returns to a best-of-five series. The Division Series consists of two matchups in each league, with the winners advancing to the League Championship Series.

Overall, the new MLB Wild Card format for 2023 injects more excitement and drama into the postseason. The single-elimination Wild Card game and the best-of-three Wild Card round create a high-pressure environment for teams vying for a spot in the Division Series. This format rewards regular-season success while also providing opportunities for dark horse teams to make a deep playoff run. As the competition heats up, fans can look forward to thrilling moments and memorable performances as teams battle it out for a chance at the World Series.
