October Baseball Is Here!

Oct 5, 2017

The American League Division Series start today. This afternoon, the lowly Boston Red Sox play in Houston, and then tonight, the 27-time world champion New York Yankees play in Cleveland.

Tomorrow, we get fully four postseason baseball games, with both National League series starting.

The best sports month of the year is upon us. This hour, we preview the Major League postseason proper and take a look back at the local Minor League season with an episode of WNPR's just-finished Yard Goats podcast, The Second First Season.
