The Associated Press (h/t ESPN) confirmed on Monday that the highest seed playing in the World Series will serve as the "home team" and receive the final at-bats in Games 1 and 2 and, if necessary, Games 6 and 7. 

Per an agreement between the league and MLB Players Association, this year's World Series will occur at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, the home ballpark of the Texas Rangers, to limit travel between clubs amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Unlike in previous seasons where teams would play in-market World Series games, a higher seed that has fewer wins than a lower-seeded opponent will get "home-field advantage" for this year's Fall Classic.
