MLB Opening Day 2023: Live Coverage, Previews, and Highlights
After the most anticipated regular season in recent memory, it's time to run the bases! All 30 teams take the field today, starting with a 1:05 p.m. ET matchup between Anthony Volpe's New York Yankees and Jacob deGrom's Texas Rangers. Volpe, at 21 years old, is the youngest to start for the Bronx on Opening Day since Derek Jeter.
Meanwhile, deGrom makes his debut for the Rangers in their home opener versus the reigning National League champion Philadelphia Phillies and their prized offseason acquisition Trea Turner. It's a day of new beginnings, as the country and baseball fans alike look to enjoy the games under the new rules and faster-paced matchups.
We won't blame you for taking a day off if Opening Day is anything to go by. With four games starting in the afternoon and the finale featuring one of the game's best players, Shohei Ohtani, of the Los Angeles Angels, we should expect an entertaining day of baseball.
Jose Abreu will face his former team, the Chicago White Sox, as part of the Houston Astros, who have won the last year's World Series. Our reporters will be at the ballpark for these games, providing their pregame insights, plus posting lineups and updates throughout the day covering all the action.
Don't miss out on this grand opening - it's sure to be a great day of baseball.
