Days without baseball are long and hard to go through.
Since the end of the thrilling 2022 World Series, we have kept ourselves busy with the offseason, free agent signings, trades, and even some Winter Leagues.
But there is nothing like Major League Baseball.
Fortunately, we are inching closer and closer to a return to action.
March 30 will be a huge day in MLB.
It’s Opening Day in the best baseball league in the world!
“Mark your calendars for March 30. The 2023 Opening Day game times are set!” FOX Sports MLB tweeted.

The official Opening Day schedule in MLB is now set, with a total of 15 games (all teams will play that day).
The San Francisco Giants will visit the Bronx to play against the New York Yankees.
We can call that the “Arson Judge sweepstakes”.
All kidding aside, both teams will be contenders in their respective divisions and the matchup will be very attractive for fans of both squads and even some neutrals.
In a battle of emerging powerhouses, the Philadelphia Phillies will take on the Texas Rangers, while the Toronto Blue Jays will face the St. Louis Cardinals in a duel of legitimate playoff contenders.
The defending World Series champs, the Houston Astros, will open their campaign at home, in Minute Maid Park, hosting the Chicago White Sox.
It will be a great day to sit in front of the TV around 1 ET and get up around midnight in a true baseball marathon.
We can’t wait for the 2023 MLB season to start, but fortunately, spring training is right around the corner to entertain us, as well as the World Baseball Classic.NEXT: Julio Rodriguez Shares A Powerful Message Of Motivation
