The American League

The American League is made up of two divisions, the East and the West. The divisional winners and a wild card team play each other in the American League Division Series (ALDS). The winner of the ALDS then goes on to play the winner of the National League Division Series (NLDS) in the World Series.

The American League Championship Series

The American League Championship Series (ALCS) is a best-of-seven playoff pitting the two winners of the American League Division Series. The winner of the ALCS advances to the World Series to face the National League champion.

The ALCS began in 1969 as a best-of-five series. It expanded to a best-of-seven format in 1985. The American League has used a 2–3–2 home field advantage since 1985, when the ALCS expanded to best-of-seven. Prior to 1985, home field advantage alternated between the two divisional winners each year. From 1984 to 1995, home field advantage alternated between the East and West division winners regardless of whether they occupied first or second place at the end of the regular season.

The Kansas City Royals have won the World Series twice (1985, 2015), and they’ve done so as an AL wild card team both times. They are currently in first place in the AL Central, but if they were to win the division, they would face Houston in the ALDS. If they were to win that series, they would then play either Boston or New York in the ALCS.

The World Series

The American League champion Kansas City Royals will face the National League champion San Francisco Giants in the 2014 World Series. The best-of-seven series will begin on October 21 and will be played at both Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City and AT&T Park in San Francisco.

The National League

In the National League, the Kansas City Royals would play the winner of the one-game playoff between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants. If the Royals win, they’ll be the first team to ever play in the World Series in their home ballpark.
