The MLB Postseason has already been a little different this year, but there are still going to be plenty of options for MLB Playoff live streams. There are more teams that made it into the playoffs, and the series are expanding to more games as the rounds go on.  Another big change is that the remaining MLB Playoff games will be played in set locations in California and Texas instead of in the home town stadiums.

Sixteen teams started in the MLB Postseason tournament in 2020, which is the largest MLB Playoffs ever. Even in such a unique year, baseball fans are going to want to see all the MLB postseason games they can online. The League Championship Series round is here to crown the best team in the American League (AL) and National League (NL). It’s the MLB version of the Final Four. Here's how to watch the MLB Playoffs live stream.

The MLB Postseason began with eight Wild Card series, where each winner of two games out of three advanced. The MLB Division Series round featured best of five game series. Then the League Championship Series will returned to the traditional baseball seven game series. 

Now the World Series is on, and it only ends when either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Tampa Bay Rays has won it all.
