2015 MLB postseason schedule: Start times, TV listings, recaps

1:50 | MLB
The historic and deserving World Champion Royals
Monday September 28th, 2015

One thing is certain about the 2015 MLB postseason: It will end with the crowning of a new champion. The San Francisco Giants, the 2014 World Series champs, failed to make it back to the playoffs, but among the 10 teams that will be there are the Kansas City Royals, last year's AL champion; the Chicago Cubs, who are looking to end their 107-year title drought; and the Toronto Blue Jays, who are the only team that had yet to reach the postseason in the wild-card era.

See below for the complete 2015 MLB postseason schedule, including start times, TV networks and, after each game, more of SI's playoff coverage.

All times listed are Eastern Standard Time.
