If two teams are tied for the Wild Card, the tie shall be broken as follows:
A one-game playoff shall be played on Monday, September 29 to determine the Wild Card. The site of the game would be determined by a coin flip and the winner of the game shall be declared the Wild Card.
Example of Scenario #3: The Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox tie for the AL Wild Card. The New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics win the AL East and AL West, respectively. The Mariners and Red Sox would play a one-game playoff on Monday, September 29 to determine the AL Wild Card.
