MLB: Postseason Game 7 Results All-Time
Since 1903, Major League Baseball has hosted 109 World Series. More than a third of them – 37 – went on to a deciding Game 7.
Some time back, Sports List of the Day brought you all World Series Game 7 results.
But what about the playoff series leading up to the World Series – the American League Championship Series (ALCS) and the National League Championship Series (NLCS)? How many of those have there been and which ones went to seven games?
Which teams had the longest battles before earning a trip to the World Series?
Here’s your answer…including the 2012 San Francisco Giants, who tonight wrapped up their NLCS with the St. Louis Cardinals. They became only the seventh team in history to come back from being down three games to one in either the ALCS and NLCS.
In total, the ALCS and NLCS have seen 15 Game 7′s. 1985 was the first season they both moved to a best-of-seven format.Follow @VinGetz
