The 2021 World Series is in full swing and we’ll have baseball in November. The Houston Astros stayed alive in the Fall Classic against the Atlanta Braves with a win in Game 5 on Sunday night. Atlanta still leads the series, 3-2, as it returns to Houston. Game 6 is scheduled for Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.

The 2021 MLB playoffs mark a return to some sense of normalcy for the sport. No more neutral sites, fanless games and the 16-team format; the concepts of field advantage and sold-out sales are back, as is the 10-team pitch. The Yankees and Cardinals lost in the Wild Card Games.

So what does MLB playoff support look like? Below are the schedule and results of all rounds as they unfold, spanning across the League Division and Championship Series, and ending with the 2021 World Series.
