Which MLB teams are Playing during the 2024 MLB Opening Day TV Schedule?

So, I’m not sure if we refer to March 28th as the second Opening Day? The Big Opening Day? You get the drift. This will be the second straight year that we enjoy all 30 teams playing on the 2024 MLB Opening Day TV schedule since 1968. It’s almost like March Madness for baseball to me! 

So, all of my original paragraph? Scratch that. Mother Nature has had her vote already. The Met’s and Phillies home openers are shifted to Friday, March 29th, 2024, now. The change is based on imminent bad weather for both locations. MLB.com breaks the news to us here. So, we’ll get to enjoy 13 vice 15 games on Opening Day now. We’ll keep you posted on any additional weather impacts to the schedule.
