Best Answer

The series is the best of 5. In other words, whoever wins 3 games first. If both teams win 2 games, then there will be 5 games played. If one team dominates and wins the first three games, then there are only 3 games.

In the current format, all Division Series' are "Best of 5." Therefore, per individual series, there is a potential for 5 games maximum. With a total of 20 potential games maximum possible for the entire Divisional round which features 4 separate matchups between 8 total teams.

This question is better understood if the terms are more up to date. In the post season, Baseball has a play off system to settle on the two teams that will play in the World Series. The first play off game is a one game affair. The winner then goes onto the next set of play off games. There the winner is the team which wins the best out of 5 games. The next "series" is a playoff where its the team with the best of seven wins. At this point a team has qualified for the World Series which is also the best of seven games to be declared the best team in baseball.

Have 3 teams from the same division ever made the NFL playoffs?

Yes, you would have one division winner, and 2 wild card teams that could possibly be from the same division. That last occurred in the 2007 season. The wildcard teams in the NFC were the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, both from the East division, and in the AFC were the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, both from the South division. yes. in 1494 the colu

As a corollary to a 3-13 team making the playoffs under the current NFL alignment what is the best regular season record a team could have and still not make the playoffs?

In the same way as the potential 3-13 play-off team, there could be a division where the four teams split the wins between them and win all their games outside their division, so all four teams would finish 13-3. Only the division champions plus a maximum of two wild cards from the division would qualify for the play-offs, so a 13-3 team would be guaranteed to miss out.

How many games in MLB playoffs?

The amount of games in Major League Baseball's playoffs each Fall varies, depending on the series. If a tiebreaker is necessary to decide the Wild Card from either division, then a single game will be played between the tying teams to determine who enters the playoffs as the Wild Card. The first round, also known as the Division Series (ALDS for the American League, and NLDS for the National League) is a Best-of-5 series with a winner determined after three total game wins. The winner of this series advances to their league's Championship Series (ALCS and NLCS), which is a Best-of-7 series. The two teams that win the two Championship Series will then face one another in the finals of the playoffs, known as the "World Series". Like the Championship Series, the World Series is a Best-of-7, with the winner taking all after four wins. Because these are a series of "Best-ofs", the amount of games played each year in the playoffs may be greatly different. If every contention between two teams is a clean sweep, the amount of games played will be far fewer than average. Conversely, if every series goes to its maximum number of games, the playoffs will take longer than usual.

Why do college players have one or two pieces of tape wrapped around the lower barrel of the bat?

I play division 1 baseball and I know many umpires make the tape mandatory because pine tar is sometimes used on the bats and can only be used so far up the bat. The tape is measured to that maximum height as a guide to enforce this rule I also play Division 1 baseball and the tape is used for pine tar limitations, but most players do that just for the look. It's just one of those trends in baseball that goes on and on. Some people have one strip and others could have multiple strips. It's more of a trend than a need.
