The 2019 season will technically begin with the 2019
Japan Opening Series, featuring the Oakland Athletics
hosting the Seattle Mariners at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.
That’ll be on March 20-21, when everyone else is still
in spring training.
Traditional Opening Day, featuring all 30
Major League Clubs, will take place on Thursday, March
28th. The earliest Opening Day ever, not counting
Certain teams getting Friday off, most likely for
Collective Bargaining Agreement-mandated travel-related
days off. This year we’ve seen a lot of odd Wednesday
off-days for the same reason.;
We’re also going to see the much talked about London
Series between the Yankees and the Red Sox on June 29
and June 30, with offdays built in before and after;
play his first games back in St. Louis since leaving via
free agency lo those many years ago. It’ll take place in
late June; and
The Royals and Tigers will play in Omaha in June in
honor of the College World Series.
There will be other things not yet incorporated into the
schedule such as the Sunday night games and a planned Mexico
series involving the Angels. The whole thing wraps up
Sunday, September 29.
