Best Answer

MLB conducts a coin toss prior to the conclusion of the season. All teams who have the possibility of being the wild card (or the possibility of a tie for division winner) are included and all possible scenarios are covered. The team winning the coin toss hosts a one-game playoff to see which team advances as the wild card, or which team wins the division, if that is the case. If two teams are tied for thhe division lead, and also tied with a team from another division for the wild card, the two teams tied for the division lead will have their tie-breaker game played first. The winner of that game is the division champ, and the loser of that game plays a one game tie-breaker against the team from the other division to determine the wild card.

In the event of 2 teams being tied for the Divisional lead and also being tied with another team that is in the Wild Card standings then the 2 teams that are in the divisional lead race will play a tie-breaking game to determine the winner of the division and the team that wins the tiebreaker will win the Division while the other 2 teams wild be the two Wild Card teams and will be responsible for playing against one another in a Wild Card game.
