In relation to baseball, it is the combination of wins for the team in first & the number of losses for the team in second, in order for the first place team to win their division. As an example, Cleveland has a magic number of 10 over Detroit. Thus, any combination of Cleveland wins &/or Detroit losses, & Cleveland wins the American League Central. According to scholastic rock, 3 is a magic number.
