baseball season

From Wikipedia, The 2018 Major League Baseball season began on March 29, 2018, and is scheduled to end on September 30. The postseason will begin on October 2. The 2018 World Series is set to begin on October 23, and a potential Game 7 is scheduled for October 31.The 89th Major League Baseball All-Star Game was held on July 17 at Nationals Park, the home of the Washington Nationals. The American League won 8–6 in 10 innings.

The 2018 Major League Baseball season is already assured of starting on a historic note when it gets underway on Thursday, March 29. It will feature the first full slate of Opening Day games in 50 years and the earliest beginning date at any traditional Major League ballpark.

MLB released its tentative 2018 master regular-season schedule on Tuesday, and the unique Opening Day rollout will be among key new features, along with a single marquee game (Cardinals at Cubs) coming out of the All-Star break, an expanded three to four additional off-days for each team and MLB’s first Midsummer Classic in Washington, D.C., in nearly a half-century.

The 1968 season — the last one with a single postseason series, the World Series — began with all 20 teams in action. In 2018, all 30 clubs will open on the same day, a notable departure from recent years. It will be only the 12th time in MLB history, and the first since 2011, that the regular season will begin on a Thursday (also 1901-04, ’07, ’12, ’59, ’73-74 and ’76).

March 29 also will represent the earliest start to a Major League season, excluding special international events. The previous earliest opener at traditional Major League ballparks was March 30, when the 2003, ’08 and ’14 seasons began.
