When is MLB Opening Day 2022? Date, TV schedule, start times for all 30 teams

In the past it seemed like MLB Opening Day could at no point come in the future. Basically not for some time. Presently, MLB fans can cheer: baseball is not far off.

Following a months-in length lockout that pushed the beginning of the time back and took steps to drop normal season games, players are back on spring preparing fields as they gear up for one more shot at the Commissioner’s Trophy.

This year’s Opening Day will still be different than what was expected. The first two series of the season that fans expected to see when schedules were initially released in 2021 have been scattered throughout the season after they were postponed by commissioner Rob Manfred as the lockout continued.

Over the past four years, all 30 teams have opened the season on the same day. That isn’t the case this year, however, as there will be some teams that begin the day after Opening Day.

Here’s everything you need to know about Opening Day in 2022, including the full TV schedule with start times for all 30 teams.

When is MLB Opening Day 2022?

  • Date: Thursday, April 7

The first games on the 2022 MLB schedule will be held on April 7. However, not every team will be starting on that day. There will be a few teams that begin the following day, Friday, April 8. This is the first time in five years that not all teams will be opening on the same day.

The 2022 season will begin at one of the game’s cathedrals. With the scheduled Red Sox-Yankees game postponed, the Brewers and Cubs will open the MLB season at Wrigley Field at 2:20 p.m. ET.
