Only four MLB teams remain, battling in the League Championship Series to earn the opportunity to play on the greatest stage of all, the World Series.
As each series continues to define itself as the epitome of cutthroat competition, even the biggest MLB stars begin to feel the weight of the pressure. Each pitch is of the utmost importance, one swing can change the game's landscape and the attempt to keep a clear mind on the playing field grows increasingly difficult.
Players that flourished in the Division Series are quickly realizing that the level of play and intensity of the game is turned up a notch as teams are eliminated.
Which stars have folded under the immense pressure?
More than you'd think.
