Baseball Opening Day 2018: When is it? Watch, stream every MLB game, live updates, scores, schedule, start times

Spring training is in the books and the 2018 Major League Baseball regular season is finally underway. Twenty-six teams will be playing in what's a traditional Opening Day on Thursday. Unfortunately, two games -- Pirates vs. Tigers and Nationals vs. Reds -- have been postponed due to inclement weather, so they'll have to wait until Friday. From that point, 30 teams will make the six-month trek to determine which 10 will make the postseason. Not every team has realistic playoff aspirations, of course, but hope -- foolish or otherwise -- is part of the beauty of Opening Day.

Speaking of which, here's how you can watch all of those Opening Day baseball games:
