It has become customary for the Yankees to play in prime time — and something their fans came to expect. But no matter what day they start, the Yankees know when they will play. And it’s early.
MLB announced this afternoon that the Yankees’ ALDS Games 1 and 2 will start at 6:07 p.m., regardless of if it starts on Wednesday or Thursday. The coveted late-night spot goes to the Cardinals and Dodgers on Wednesday and Thursday and to the Red Sox and Angels on Friday.
The Yankees still have until one hour after their opponent is determined to choose their series. All games will be broadcast on TBS.
