Now that we’re well underway into the second half of the 2016 Major League Baseball regular season, we can finally start looking ahead to the playoffs!
Today we’re taking a look at the 2016 World Series, LCS, LDS, Wildcard, and Postseason logos which have been floating all around the Internet over the past few months (and finally yesterday in an email sent out by a few MLB clubs). Frankly, we got tired of seeing them here and there so we’re laying them all out for you in one, easy-to-find spot. Magic!
