When will baseball season start in 2024? As of now, we do not know exactly when the season will begin in 2024, but it typically starts in April and ends with the World Series. The exact dates of the 2024 baseball season will be released by Major League Baseball (MLB) at some point in the fall of 2021. Fans can check back then to find out when their favorite teams will play their first games next year and whether any significant changes have been made to the schedule that was released this past December . But in the meantime, let’s take a look at what happened this past year…

Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball’s regular season lasts about six months, starting on March 28 and running through September. While there are no games between October and February, teams may play exhibition games during spring training (which begins in mid-February). Regular season interleague play typically starts in late May, but it isn’t until July that most teams start playing against other league foes consistently. The postseason is much shorter than MLB‘s long regular season; it only takes about one month for four playoff rounds to conclude. Because of its short length, many people think of baseball as a summer sport—but it’s important to remember that unlike many other sports leagues, MLB has a hard and fast start date rather than kicking off whenever spring arrives.

While Major League Baseball schedules a 162-game regular season, how many games are actually played during that time? Believe it or not, some of them are rained out! Major League Baseball plays about 140 games during each regular season. That’s because all teams get scheduled for three days off. Some of those days can be made up at other points in the season or added to a team’s preseason schedule (if they are participating), but every team is guaranteed three days off per season…usually on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Those scheduled days off often change if a team has won several consecutive games.

The following chart will help you determine when Opening Day will occur during each MLB season between 2017 and 2021. The chart also provides a quick view of what month you can expect to see players report to Spring Training as well as how many days it takes until baseball is back in action following The World Series. For example, you’ll notice that from 2017 through 2019, Opening Day takes place around March 28th. From 2020 through 2021, we’re looking at dates closer to April 1st. There are always some exceptions but knowing which week baseball season starts helps give you an idea of how much time there is before pitchers and catchers report for duty come February.

The Major League Baseball regular season will get underway on March 3rd, 2024. The first game of that day is between two longtime rivals, with Opening Day taking place at Fenway Park, home of baseball’s oldest franchise: The Boston Red Sox and their nemesis, The New York Yankees.
