About MLB Opening Day
MLB Opening Day Tickets
Opening Day. One of our favorite days of the year. The kickoff to six glorious months of hot dogs and home runs. Sure, March is technically just the beginning of spring, but when baseball season rolls around, we're all-in on summer. The roar of the stadium, the (generally) good-natured heckling, and the age-old rivalries… it's the stuff we live for. Baseball season is here, and we're pumped. Major League Baseball has thrown fans a curveball this season by scheduling the earliest Opening Day in league history. The good news: that means less waiting for fans who are eager for the start of the season. The not-as-good news: it also means less time to think about buying MLB Opening Day tickets. Fear not, though. There are plenty of exciting matchups scheduled for Opening Day, and there’s still time to make sure you’re there for the action in person.
MLB Opening Day 2020
The MLB season officially opens on Thursday, March 26. As mentioned, that’s the earliest Opening Day in history – not counting games that have been played abroad. This year’s Opening Day is also special because it’s the first time since 1968 that every team will be scheduled to play its first game of the season on the same day. Barring any games being postponed due to weather, there will be 15 games on Opening Day to get the season started off with a bang.
MLB Opening Day Schedule
The first pitch of the season will come from one of two games scheduled for 1:10 EST on Opening Day. On the East Coast, the reigning world champion Washington Nationals will be on the road to take on the New York Mets. If that game gets started first, it’ll be Jacob deGrom, the winner of the Cy Young in the National League the last two seasons, who throws the first pitch of the season. In the Midwest, the Detroit Tigers will be taking on the Cleveland Indians in Ohio. With Cleveland being at home, we could see Mike Clevinger throw the first pitch of the season. Opening Day will wrap up with the Atlanta Braves facing the Arizona Diamondbacks out in the desert for a 10:10 EST game.
