American League Division Series

 The 1997 American League Division Series, the opening round of the 1997 American League playoffs, began on Tuesday, September 30, and ended on Monday, October 6, with the champions of the three AL divisions—along with a "wild card" team—participating in two best-of-five series. The teams were:

Baltimore Orioles vs. Seattle Mariners: Orioles win series, 3–1.

Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees: Indians win series, 3–2.

The higher seed had the home field advantage, which was not tied to playing record but was predetermined—a highly unpopular arrangement which was discontinued after the conclusion of the 1997 playoffs. Also, the team with home field advantage was required to play the first two games on the road, with potentially the last three at home, in order to reduce travel. The Orioles played the Mariners, rather than the wild card Yankees, because the Orioles and Yankees are in the same division. Had the 1997 ALDS been played under the post-1997 arrangement, then Baltimore would have faced off against Cleveland and New York would have faced off against Seattle.
