When does the Major League Baseball (MLB) start?
Major League Baseball is one of the most watched sports across the world and the global appeal of the game continues to make it box office viewing.
Few competitions can compete with the MLB when it comes to the number of fixtures played. Traditionally the season mirrors the American summer and takes place between late March and early October.
Each of the 30 teams in the MLB play 162 games per season, making it one of the most frantic sporting schedules on the world calendar but it is an absolute feast for baseball fans.
COVID 19 has played havoc within the MLB schedule, with the season postponed and then played out behind closed doors (with only 60 matches being played) however a sense of normality within the MLB structure is currently being restored.
The 2020 MLB season has now reached the postseason stage, with the 7-game World Series Final due to begin on October 20th, 2020.
