This kind of slipped my attention this week — I blame the fact my email was nearly nonfunctional for a couple of day, even though that’s a pretty bad excuse — but Major League Baseball has announced the game times for next season. There are still a few TBDs sprinkled in there, but for the most part, the game times are set.
The Yankees open with three straight night games in Houston, then they get one night game and two day games in Toronto before coming to the Bronx for a 1:05 p.m. home opener on April 7. Three of the first five home games are day games, including the first two. The series opener in St. Louis is an afternoon game, which matters to me, because it means a late dinner with my friends that night. I was really hoping for a day game in Kansas City on June 9, but no luck. Gonna be an early morning flight to Seattle the next day, with a game that night. The regular season ends with a day game at Fenway. Potentially a nice way to finish.
The full Yankees schedule is available through this link, and below is the initial schedule for ESPN Sunday night games with the dreaded 8:05 p.m. first pitch. The Yankees, of course, have two of the first five.
