Major League Baseball is heating up and this year’s playoffs promise excitement like never before! The introduction of the one-game wildcard playoff this year guarantees drama from day one of the 2012 playoffs. In fact, both leagues have dramatic races for division crown’s as well as the two wildcard berths and September is going to be a wild ride as we see who makes it to baseball’s “second season”.
Another new element to this year’s playoff schedule are division series games being broadcast on MLB Network (DISH channel 152) as well as TBS (DISH channel 139). Both networks will combine to bring live game action in stunning HD digital picture and sound for a fully immersive experience right in your own home.
