Nats open against Yankees

Major League Baseball’s coronavirus-delayed 2020 season gets under way on July 23 with the World Series champions Washington Nationals hosting the New York Yankees, the league said on Monday. The Los Angeles Dodgers host their National League West rivals San Francisco Giants on opening day, with all other 28 teams launching the abbreviated season on the 24th. Those games will include the first game at the Texas Rangers’ new Globe Life Field, where they will host the Colorado Rockies. The 60-game regular season will see teams play their four division rivals 10 times each. Their other 20 games will be against interleague opponents in the same region as MLB attempts to minimize travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The season was to have started on March 26, and MLB and the players’ union didn’t reach agreement on a shortened format until June 23.
