Best Answer

By winning its division and then winning the two league playoff championships. There are four teams from each league that go to the playoffs, three division winners and one wildcard team. The usual seeding is the division winner with the best season record plays the wildcard team and the two other division winners play each other. However, if the team with the best overall record and the wildcard team come from the same division then the wildcard team will play the division winner with the second best overall record and the division winner with the best overall record will play the other division winner. The winners of those two seven game series then play another seven game series with the winner advancing to the World Series.

How do MLB teams get to the World Series?

1) First, a team must make the playoffs. Each league (American and National) has their teams divided into three divisions. If a team comes in first place in the division they play in OR they have the best win/loss record of all the teams that don't win their division (this team is called the wild card team), they make the playoffs. There are four teams in each league that make the playoffs. 2) The team then must win the first round of the playoffs called the Divisional Series. This series is a best 3 of 5 games. 3) The team must then win the second round of the playoffs called the Championship Series. This series is a best 4 of 7 games. The winner of this series gets to play in the World Series.
