The Boston Red Sox won the coin toss yesterday to determine the home site of a one-game playoff should the American League East end in a tie with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The playoff would be held Monday, Oct. 7 at Fenway Park, the league said.
Toronto won the right to make the call of the flip, which was held at AL president Bobby Brown's office.
The league playoffs begin Oct. 8 in the city of the West Division champion.
* PIRATES: The National League East champions have asked for a ruling on whether they can use one roster for the playoffs and, if successful, another for the World Series.
