It's time to mark your October calendar, baseball fans.

Major League Baseball on Thursday announced the postseason schedule, which starts Oct. 2 with the National League wild-card game, followed by the American League edition on Oct. 3.

Should a tiebreaker game be needed to determine the wild card, that game will be played Oct. 1.

Following the wild card round, the NL Division Series will start Oct. 4, with the league championship series scheduled for Oct. 12.

The AL Division series is set to begin Oct. 5, with the championship series on Oct. 13.

Oct. 23 is the scheduled start date for the World Series. If it goes to a Game 7, that is scheduled to be played on Oct. 31.

The World Series will start at the stadium of the pennant winner that finished with the better record in the regular season. Should those records be the same, the standard tiebreaking rules will be in effect. The first tiebreaker is head-to-head winning percentage during the regular season, followed by the higher winning percentage in intradivision games.
