BASEBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE MAJOR LEAGUES : Possible Playoff Sites Determined

September 17, 1993| Associated Press

Oriole Park at Camden Yards will be the site of the American League East playoff game if Baltimore winds up in a two-way tie for the divisional title.

In a series of coin flips and a drawing of lots held at the office of American League President Bobby Brown, Baltimore won the home field if it ends up tied with either Toronto or the New York Yankees.

If Toronto and New York tie, the game would be played at Yankee Stadium. If there's a three-way tie, the Yankees would play at Toronto, with the winner then playing host to the Orioles.

If the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers tie for the West Division lead, a one-game playoff would be held in Comiskey Park in Chicago.
