MLB Rule Changes

Major League Baseball

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - All postseason games will be played to their conclusion under a change to the major league rules approve by baseball owners.

Owners also voted to use head-to-head records to replace coin flips when determining home-field advantage for tiebreaker games in division and wild-card races.

Games would be suspended if they are called, regardless of how many innings have been played or the score at the time. A suspended
game is resumed and played to completion at the same site.

The change also applies to tiebreaker games but not to the All-Star game.
