Every team plays every team: MLB unveils balanced 2023 schedule

NEW YORK (AP) — Every major league team will play each other in the same season for the first time next year as the sport switches to its first balanced schedule since 2000.

As a result of the format switch agreed upon in the March lockout, high-profile games between division rivals such as Yankees-Red Sox, Dodgers-Giants and Cubs-Cardinals will be reduced from 19. Intradivision games will drop from 47%. 32%.

One team will host the other 29 clubs at least once every two seasons.

“I think it’s great for the fans,” Mets manager Buck Showalter said. “I’m so tired of playing the same guy.”

Major League Baseball said Wednesday it will open the 2023 season on March 30 and again try to start every team on the same day, which was last done in 1968.
