The postseason is upon us, and for baseball fans, October is the pinnacle of excitement. Last year’s postseason was a testament to the sport’s thrill, featuring walk-off home runs, stunning comebacks, and even a combined no-hitter. This year, fresh faces have joined the fray, promising another exhilarating journey towards the Commissioner’s Trophy.

The Baltimore Orioles have not only returned to the postseason for the first time since 2016 but have also achieved their first 100-win season in 43 years, securing the best record in the American League. On the other hand, the New York Yankees will be notably absent from the postseason for the first time since 2016, while perennial contenders like the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers are back in action.

Will one of the National League powerhouses secure a second title this decade, or will this October witness the rise of an underdog Cinderella story?

For those eager to catch all the action, you can watch 2023 MLB playoff games live with Fubo (free trial).
