Best Answer

How is home field advantage determined in baseball playoffs?

During the first playoff games, home field advantage goes to the team who has the better win/loss record with the exception of the wild card team. Whichever team the wild card plays against will automatically have home field advantage because they are the division champions, even if the wild card team has a better win/loss record. During the Fall Classic (World Series), however, home field advantage is decided by the All-Star Game. Whichever league (American or National) wins the All-Star Game, it will be the league that gets home field advantage for the Fall Classic. This is the single-most important reason the All-Star Game is played.
