All-Star Game No Longer Decides Home-Field Advantage For World Series 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Dec 1, 2016 1:28 pm

The league that wins Major League Baseball's All-Star Game will no longer receive home-field advantage in the World Series.

The pennant winner with the better regular-season record will receive home-field advantage.

The change was included in baseball's tentative new collective bargaining agreement.

I'm shocked that's how it was decided before, I had no idea (yes, I'm pretty ignorant about this side of things).
