The baseball world waited months for the 2020 MLB schedule to begin with Opening Day. After a lengthy delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MLB teams celebrated the release of the 2020 schedule on Monday.

On a day that saw MLB face criticism for teams not adhering to COVID-19 protocols and some clubs canceling workouts due to delayed COVID-19 test results, MLB also released its 2020 schedule.

The countdown is on for Opening Day, which will take place on July 23 when the Washington Nationals face the Houston Astros Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers battle against the San Francisco Giants.

Once the 2020 MLB schedule came out, MLB teams reacted with excitement as the hunt for October begins.
