The MLB has set the first game of the season, and it begins with the champs.
A couple of sources including the New York Post say, the defending World Series champions, the Washington Nationals will open the season, hosting the New York Yankees at the Nationals Park in Washington DC, even though the schedule is not finalized. The Yankees are considered one of the favorites to win the World Series this year. The players just signed off on a proposal, on a 60-game regular season that will run from late July through late September. Next week, players and staff members will report to training camps, most of which will be held in home stadiums.
