Events[edit]

The 2020 Major League Baseball season is slated to open on March 26th, the earliest date ever except for years when a foreign series has been played before Opening Day. All 30 teams are scheduled to play that day, a first since 1968 (when there were only 20 teams)l; this was already supposed to happen in 2018, but there were a couple of rainouts that year.

Among the special occasions planned for the year will be a series in Puerto Rico between the New York Mets and Miami Marlins in late April, and the return of MLB to London, England with a two-game series between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals in June. The Little League Classic will return for a fourth year in Williamsport, PA and a special game will be played in Dyersville, IA next to the Field of Dreams movie set on August 13th.
