The 2023 MLB season is almost here, and some changes are forthcoming for the game.
This season, some new rules will be in place, such as a pitch clock and limits on the defensive shift.
The schedule is also going to be a lot different.
For the first time, every team in Major League Baseball will play each other at least once during the regular season, regardless of divisions and leagues.
This means we will see teams such as the New York Yankees match up with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres at certain points during the season.
With every team set to meet each other at least once, MLB posed an interesting question to fans.

There are fans of several teams who are looking forward to the opportunity to see their favorite team play a team that they may not normally see.
Interestingly enough, the Los Angeles Angels have not made a trip to Citi Field to play the New York Mets since before Shohei Ohtani was signed.
Mets fans would certainly welcome the opportunity to see one of the best players in the game make a pass through their home stadium.
Rarely do the Yankees match up with the St. Louis Cardinals or teams in the NL Central.
Fans in St. Louis got a taste of Aaron Judge last summer when the Yankees came to town.
But now, they’ll have an opportunity to see him make another stop at Busch Stadium.
Times have changed, but baseball is about to get even better.NEXT: Yankees Catcher Takes Home A Very Special 2023 Award
