1969 Main League Baseball playoffs

The 1969 MLB Postseason was once the playoff event of Main League Baseball for the 1969 season. It was once the primary version of the brand new playoff machine presented by way of the MLB, coinciding with the start of the “Divisional Generation.” With each and every league increasing from 10 groups to twelve groups, each leagues had been divided into two six-team divisions. Groups persisted to play 162-game schedules, in position since 1962, by way of now enjoying the opposite 5 groups in their very own department 18 instances each and every (90 video games) and enjoying the six groups of their league’s different department 12 instances each and every (72 video games). The winners of each and every department would advance to the postseason and face each and every different in a League Championship Sequence, then a best-of-five collection, to resolve the pennant winners that might face each and every different within the International Sequence.

The playoffs started on October 4, 1969, two days after the tip of the 1969 Main League Baseball season, and concluded on October 16, 1969, with the New York Mets provoking the 109-win Baltimore Orioles in 5 video games within the 1969 International Sequence, to win their first ever International Sequence name.
