After last year’s pandemic-delayed MLB season, the 2021 MLB season is beginning right on time. And there’s a strong slate of games to kick off Opening Day.
All 30 teams will be in action for a non-stop lineup of MLB action. But only a few will be broadcast on ESPN. The rest will be limited to local stations.
Starting us off will be the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in an AL East showdown with the rival Toronto Blue Jays. The Cleveland Indians will take on the Detroit Tigers just a few minutes later.
On ESPN, the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers will be the second team featured at 4:10, taking on the Colorado Rockies on the road. After that, the New York Mets take center stage in the nation’s capital against the Washington Nationals.
Closing out ESPN’s slate of games will be the Houston Astros and the Oakland A’s.
