Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"There's a story, a funny story, about me (John Kruk) sitting in a restaurant. I'm eating this big meal and maybe having a couple of beers and smoking a cigarette. A woman comes by the table. She recognizes me and she's shocked because it seems like I should be in training or something. She's getting all over me, saying that a professional athlete should take better care of himself. I lean back and I say to her, 'I ain't an athlete, lady. I'm a baseball player.'" - John Kruk in "I Ain't an Athlete, Lady..." (John Kruk, Simon & Schuster Publishing, 01/01/1994, Forward)

The League Championship Series determines who wins the league pennant and advances to the World Series. Prior to 1969, the pennant winner was determined by the best won-loss record at the end of the regular season. A structured playoff series began in 1969, when both the National and American League reorganized into two divisions each, East and West. The two division winners within each league played each other in a best-of-five series to determine who would advanced to the World Series . In 1985, the format of the League Championship Series changed to best-of-seven.

Did you know that 65,829 fans watched the League Championship game played on October 11, 2003 - the most of any single game in Major League history? Did you know the smallest crowd at a League Championship game was 24,265 and that game was played on October 11, 1973 ?

Do you like the existing playoff format? Do you dislike it? Should Major League Baseball reduce the number of teams and bring back the pennant winner format? Share your opinion with us on Baseball Fever .
