The dark, baseball-less winter months are on their way out, teams are tuning up in Spring Training, and the 2019 Major League Baseball regular season is almost upon us. The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics will travel to Tokyo, Japan, to get the season underway in a two-game series on March 20-21, before the traditional Opening Day festivities get going on March 28, the earliest Opening Day in MLB history.
The 2018 Major League Baseball (MLB) promises to be another action-packed extravaganza, culminating with the World Series in October.
The 2017 MLB World Series takes place this week, with the LA Dodgers taking on the Houston Astros. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who have been impressive all season, secured their place to compete for the World Series with a crushing 4-1 National League Championship Series (NLCS) win over the Chicago Cubs.
This weekend sees the Major League Baseball season move in to the League Championship Series, with three teams having already booked their spots after advancing through the Division Series.
