MLB announces game times for upcoming season

Tweet [1]

This afternoon, Major League Baseball sent out a master schedule with updated game times for the upcoming season.

As you might expect, the Yankees open with quite a few day games. Their season opener in Tampa is a day game (3:10 start on April 6) and their last game of that opening series is also a day game (1:40 on April 8). After three night games in Baltimore, the Yankees open at home with back-to-back day games (1:05 starts on April 13 and 14) before playing their first 8:05, ESPN game on Sunday the 15th.

Head over the Yankees official site to see a full list of game times. As far as I can tell, it’s all pretty standard. A few mid-week day games mixed in, but not many surprises. Of course the Yankees play an 8:05 game Sunday night game in Boston on the night before the all-star break — no early break there — but there are quite a few day games on getaway days, which is nice.

The time for the September 22 game against Oakland is listed as TBD on both the Yankees schedule and the league’s master schedule. Not sure why. The season ends with three straight night games — Monday through Wednesday — in Boston.
