Notable Highlights from MLB Schedule Release

As of now, we still have an MLB season to play. The 60-game season will start on July 23rd (Thursday night) with a doubleheader when the Washington Nationals, fresh off their first World Series in team history, take on the team with the most World Series championships in the New York Yankees followed by an NL West showdown between the San Francisco Giants and the L.A. Dodgers.

Some other key highlights for the upcoming season via CBS Sports:

  • MLB will honor the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Negro Leagues on Aug. 16.
  • Jackie Robinson Day, which normally takes place each April 15, will be celebrated throughout the league on Aug. 28. That date is the anniversary of the March on Washington in 1963, as well as the date in 1945 when Branch Rickey met with Jackie Robinson to discuss his future in the big leagues.
  • Roberto Clemente Day will be celebrated across the league on Sept. 9.
  • The final day of the 2020 regular season is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 27. All games will begin at 3 p.m. ET to close out the season.

For the in-state teams, the Rays will open up at home against the Blue Jays while the Marlins open up on the road against the Phillies.

For now, let there be baseball!
