MLB uses 6 umpires for playoff and World Series games ... home plate, first base, second base, third base, left field foul line, right field foul line.
For the Division and Championship playoff series, the team with the best record will have the home-field advantage. For a 5 game playoff, the schedule will be like this: Home, Away, Away, Home, Home For 7 games, the schedule will be like this: Home, Home, Away, Away, Away, Home, Home Even though many people don't really pay much attention to the All-Star game, it's a very important game for the players, because the league (American or National) that wins the All-Star game is the league that gets the home-field advantage in the World Series.
The most home runs hit by one player in a playoff game is three and has been done by 6 players ... Babe Ruth of the Yankees did it twice (Game 4 of the 1926 World Series and Game 4 of the 1928 World Series), Bob Robertson of the Pirates (Game 2 of the 1971 NLCS), Reggie Jackson of the Yankees (Game 6 of the 1977 World Series), George Brett of the Royals (Game 3 of the 1978 ALCS), Adam Kennedy of the Angels (Game 5 of the 2002 ALCS), and Adrian Beltre of the Rangers (Game 4 of the 2011 ALDS).

The first baseball playoff to be called a "World Series" was the 1903 series between the Boston Red Sox and the Pittsburgh Pirates. In the first game, the starting pitchers were Deacon Phillipe and Cy Young. Since the Red Sox were the home team, and the visiting team bats first, Cy Young would have been the first person to throw a pitch in a game that would be considered part of a World Series.
Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series. He also hit five overall homers in that Series.
