The game times for the 2012 MLB playoffs have been announced.
Major League Baseball has released the game times and locations for the Division Series.
The Division Series will begin Saturday, Oct. 6 and Sunday, Oct. 7 with the lower seeds of each series playing two games at home before a travel day, then playing out the final three games -- as necessary -- at the home field of the higher seed.
One series from each league will begin Saturday, with the other two beginning on Sunday. If each series goes to a Game 5, they will either end the evening of Thursday, Oct. 11 or Friday, Oct. 12.
While TBS will air both Wild Card games and the ALCS, they will only air 18 of the 20 possible Division Series games. The other two games -- one on Oct. 7 and Oct. 10 -- will be aired on MLB Network. It has yet to be determined which games will be aired by which network.
