MLB announced the opening day of the 2020 season

The season, delayed since March by the pandemic, is slated to begin July 23 with the Yankees-Nationals and Giants-Dodgers games.

The MLB announced the schedule for the 2020 season on Monday and it was confirmed that Washington Nationals They will begin their defense of the title on the opening day of July 23 against the New York Yankees. In addition, that day there will be another game: San Francisco Giants will be measured before Los Angeles Dodgers.

The rest of the major league teams will begin their seasons on July 24.

The start of the MLB campaign has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has wreaked havoc in the United States and around the world.

The games will take place without spectators during the regular season, which is scheduled to end on September 27 and will be followed by a 10-team playoff format.

MLB also rescheduled Jackie Robinson’s Day for August 28. The annual celebration of the Hall of Fame player who broke the color barrier in baseball in 1947 is traditionally celebrated on April 15, but had to be postponed due to COVID-19.

The new schedule will have teams playing 40 games against opponents from their same division and 20 interleague games against a corresponding geographic division, as is the case with the Eastern teams of the American League facing the Eastern teams of the National League.
