The one seed in the AL and the NL ended up in the World Series.

During the Playoffs there were multiple great players for each team, who helped there team win games. The best player in the 2020 playoffs was by far Randy Arozarena. He had the most hits and home runs in a single postseason, beating guys like Barry Bonds and Derek Jeter. Arozarena could have been the reason the Rays made it as far as thy did. Corey Seager was great for the Dodgers too. He won the NLCS and the WS MVP. The Dodgers had may other great players because they made it all the way and won it too. Many great moments and players were Will Smith, Cody Bellinger, Cory Seager, Walker Buehler, Justin Turner, Clayton Kershaw and Blake Trreinen. The Dodgers had to have players preform because they won the World Series. The Rays also had some great players because they did make it to the World Series. Players like, Randy Arozarena, Blake Snell (Now on Padres), Charlie Morton, and Mike Brosseau were all very important to the Rays success. The Astros almost made history by becoming the second teem to ever come back from a 3-0 series deficit. They ended up losing in game 7 on the ALCS to the Rays.

The 2020 Postseason was a postseason that was crazy in a year that was crazy but in the end, most people can agree that in the World Series, the number 1 team in the AL and NL ended up in the World Series. And the Dodgers (baseball referance)were the best team in 2020 and they won the World Series.
