Random information on the term “ALCS”:

The Major League Baseball Wild Card Game is a play-in game which was added to the Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason in 2012, and marks the beginning of the playoffs for both the American League and National League. The addition of a play-in game essentially maintained the three-tiered format used from 1995 through 2011, while adding a second wild-card team. Two wild-card teams in each league play each other in a single-game playoff after the end of the regular season. The winner of each league’s Wild Card Game advances to face the top-seeded team in that league’s Division Series.

The home team for the Wild Card Game is the team with the better regular-season winning percentage; if the two teams have identical winning percentages, MLB tie-breaking procedures are used to determine the home team, with no additional games being played. This is in contrast to teams tied for a division title, which, since the introduction of the Wild Card Game in 2012, do play a one-game tiebreaker for the division title, even if both teams are already qualified for the postseason. This differs from previous tie-breaking; for example, at the conclusion of the 2005 regular season, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox tied for first place in their division but did not play an additional game, as both teams were already qualified for the postseason.
