We’re 48 hours away from real baseball! On Sunday, the 2016 season kicks off with three games: STL-PIT at 1 pm, TOR-TB at 4 pm, and KC-NYM at 8:30 pm, rather than just having the one Sunday night game like they’ve done the past few years. Traditionally, we’ve done our Opening Day Live Blog on first Monday of the season, but since MLB is giving us a full day of games on Sunday, we’re going to do two Opening Day Live Blogs this year.
August Fagerstrom will here for the early game on Sunday, Paul Swydan will be here for the second game, and I’ll be your host for the night game. Then on Monday, we’ll have a continuous live blog for the 1 pm, 4 pm, and 7 pm games, with Jeff Sullivan, Owen Watson, Craig Edwards, Sean Dolinar, and others hanging out while we have our first full-ish slate of games.
So come celebrate the return of baseball with us this weekend, and then again on Monday, as we watch the 2016 season kick off together. Welcome back, baseball!
