That is correct

On a tangent: the home team for baseball's World Series is the winner of the All Stars game (held mid-season).

Yeah, for a while they simply alternated, then they went with ASG winner, what is it now? Last year's WS winner?

If so, then they're matching the NFL it seems.

Best record now determines HFA in WS

Except in this odd year where Min could have actual HFA, the SB Home Team simply gets to pick Jersey color right?

Under the new system, the team with the better record will open the World Series at home. If both teams have the same record, the next tiebreaker is head-to-head record. If that doesn’t solve it, the team with the best record within its own division gets home-field advantage.
I'd guess it's coin flip if they get to there still tied.
