Washington Nationals opens the day against the New York Yankees, while the Los Angeles Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants.
After so much waiting, the MLB It will kick off its tight 60 game schedule. The coronavirus pandemic, which generated a conflict between players and owners due to salary agreements, delayed the expected Opening Day, which this July 23 will have two games with the presentation of the last winner of the World Series.
Washington Nationals will begin defending the title at Nationals Park, in the US capital, against New York Yankees, one of the most popular franchises in the Major Leagues.
For its part, the Los Angeles Dodgers will officially present Mookie Betts, the former winner of the American League MVP in the Boston Red Sox, no less than against a historic rival like the San Francisco Giants.
The season will mean that teams will play two-thirds of their games against rivals from their own division and then the remaining third against clubs in geographically corresponding divisions in the opposing league (East vs. East, Central vs. Central, West vs. West). The postseason will maintain its 10-team format, which includes two wild card teams for each league, plus the winners of each division.
