Major League Baseball might have dragged its feet all the way to returning, but if sources are to be believed, there will be a heck of a game on Opening Day for us to view. Defending World Series champions, the Washington Nationals, according to reports, will be taking on the New York Yankees on July 23rd.
While the rest of the schedule is far from being released, this one does have a lot of merit to it. Not only does it have the previous season’s champions, but it also has a massive market team involved and one that is a big contender to take home the crown this season as well. MLB will be sticking to a regional-only schedule in the regular season, with 10 games each coming against divisional foes and the remaining 20 against teams from the other league that share divisions. So, this also makes perfect sense in regard to that.
