American League Championship Series

From BR Bullpen

The American League Championship Series (often abbreviated ALCS) is a 7-game series played between the winners of the Division Series to determine which team will represent the American League in the World Series. It was introduced in 1969, when the American League was split into an Eastern and a [Western division following the expansion of 1969. Until 1984, the ALCS was a 5-game series between the two division winners, then moved to a best-of-seven format in 1985. Starting in 1995 with the introduction of the wild card, it became possible for two teams from the same division to meet in the ALCS. This happened for the first time in 1996, with the meeting between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees, who both played in the AL East Division.
