Spring training has been going on for some time now, but the 2016 season officially kicks off on April 3 with three big games! First, the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates will play at 1:05 p.m. ET on ESPN, then the Toronto Blue Jays will take on the Tampa Bay Rays at 4:05 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
The evening concludes with a rematch of last year’s World Series as the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals go head-to-head at 8:37 p.m. ET on ESPN. If you forgot, the Royals took home the 2015 title, leaving Mets fans devastated, so New York’s Queens team is definitely looking for some revenge with this one!
And don’t worry if you don’t get these channels — the games are all available to stream online thanks to MLB. Head over to MLB.tv to check find out how you can watch everything go down, and you won’t miss a second of the action!
If your team isn’t playing on Sunday, you’ll just have to wait a day — the remaining 24 teams have games on Monday! Yup, baseball is totally taking over ESPN, ESPN2 and local channels on April 4 as 12 different games air between 1:05 p.m. ET and 10:05 p.m. ET.
If you’re too busy on the 3rd and 4th to watch all this happen, don’t worry…the baseball season is long and goes until mid-October! Each team’s regular season schedule has a whopping 162 games, and then there’s still the playoffs in the fall. LOTS to look forward to!
