Major League Baseball plans to have fans attend games at Globe Life Field in Texas during the National League Championship Series and the World Series, according to commissioner Rob Manfred.

"We are pressing ahead to have fans in Texas," Manfred told Bob Nightengale of USA Today. "One of the most important things to our game is the presence of fans. Starting down the path of having fans in stadiums, and in a safe and risk-free environment, is very, very important to our game."

MLB's postseason begins Sept. 29 with wild-card series taking place at higher-seeded teams' home ballparks. Advancing teams will enter neutral-site playoff bubbles for the division series, championship series, and World Series.
