2020 MLB Scheduling: Full 60 Player Season Presented; The Yankees-Nationals would play the first game



Major League Baseball released the full schedule for its 60-player season 2020 Monday night. The abbreviated season is scheduled to begin July 23 with a couple of night games: the Yankees at Nationals and Giants at Dodgers. A traditional opening day will take place on July 24, a Friday, with a 14-player schedule (Yankees and Nationals are off).

Here’s the full opening day schedule (all times in the East):

Thursday, July 23 (opening night)
New York Yankees at Washington Nationals, 7 p.m.
San Francisco Giants at the Los Angeles Dodgers, 10 p.m.

Friday, July 24 (opening day)

6:10
Detroit Tigers in the Cincinnati Reds, 18:10

Teams will play “regional” schedules in 2020. They meet the other four teams in their division 10 times each and play 20 games against the interleague teams in their region (ex: teams in NL East will face AL East teams). The regular 60-game season sprint will be completed on Sunday, September 27. The entire MLB schedule for 2020 is here.

Players started reporting to a second spring training (aka “summer camp”) last week. But there have already been problems with the league’s coronavirus testing process, and the uncertainty surrounds the 2020 season.

Come back soon for takeaways from the 2020 MLB schedule.
