Hankook Will Sponsor MLB Wild Card Series
Hankook Tire America Corp. will be the presenting sponsor of the 2020 American League and National League Wild Card Series.
“For the first time in Major League Baseball history, the Wild Card round has expanded to a 16-team, best-of-three series format, which is modified from the traditional four-team, single-game playoff structure, which began in 2012,” say Hankook officials.
The inaugural Wild Card Series presented by Hankook leads off with the American League on Sept. 29, followed by the National League on Sept. 30.
“All eight series are presented by Hankook and will be televised exclusively in the U.S. by ESPN and TBS.”
“We are proud to be the presenting sponsor of the American League and National League Wild Card Series,” says Sooil Lee, president of Hankook Tire America. “While it has been an unprecedented and unpredictable year, we are thrilled to be part of this historic MLB postseason.”
