Skeet, the tournament is based on the Major League Baseball schedule(please refer to MLB.com for schedules and divisions). The season is 162 games long with majority of the games played within the division. Several games are played outside the division within the same League(National League or American League). Also, a few games are Inter-League games played outside your League. I don't make the schedule, but rather I will follow exactly how the schedule has been made by Major League Baseball. There are 6 Divisions, any win within the Division against Division opponents would be a Division win. There are 2 Leagues, National and American, any win within the League against League opponents would be a League win. Your team is in the American League and the East Division. The tournament is set as a season of 162 games with a team trying to accumulate as many wins as possible. If there are any ties, that's where the tie-breakers come into play, Division wins, League wins, etc.. The playoffs include the 3 Division Champions, from the season, in each League and 1 Wild Card team, which is the best record not as a Division Champion. Playoffs include a total of 8 teams. Best record gets the home field advantage and follows the scheduling as followed: Round 1(Division Series best of 5); Game 1: Higher Seed, Game 2: Lower Seed, Game 3: Lower Seed, Game 4: Higher Seed, Game 5: Higher Seed. Round 2(League Championship Series best of 7); Game 1: Higher Seed, Game 2: Higher Seed, Game 3: Lower Seed, Game 4: Lower Seed, Game 5: Lower Seed, Game 6: Higher Seed, Game 7: Higher Seed. Round 3(WORLD SERIES best of 7); Game 1: League Winner of All-Star Game, Game 2: League Winner of All-Star Game, Game 3: League Loser of All-Star Game, Game 4: League Loser of All-Star Game, Game 5: League Loser of All-Star Game, Game 6: League Winner of All-Star Game, Game 7: League Winner of All-Star Game. The All-Star Game is played at the half way point of the season and is a Triples game made up of the 3 Division Leaders in a League facing the other 3 Division Leaders from the other League. The Winner of the All-Star Game gives their League Home Field Advantage in the WORLD SERIES and receive a GA Medal.
