MLB Opening Day has arrived. The 2024 baseball season got started in earnest Thursday, with nearly every Major League Baseball team in action. There are now 13 games on Thursday's Opening Day schedule, down from the originally slated 15 after both Phillies-Braves in Philadelphia and Mets-Brewers in New York were rained out. Those four teams will now open their seasons on Friday. The other 26 MLB teams will be taking the field Thursday.

The 2024 regular season did technically begin last week with the two-game Seoul Series between the Dodgers and Padres in South Korea, but Thursday marks the true start of the season. The 2024 MLB Opening Day schedule gets going as the Orioles host the Angels at 3:05 p.m. ET. Eight of the day's 13 games will begin at 4:10 p.m. ET, including Astros vs. Yankees and Dodgers vs. Cardinals. 

The reigning champion Rangers will then celebrate their 2023 World Series title as they host the Cubs at 7:35 p.m. ET. Mariners vs. Red Sox, meanwhile, is an intriguing part of a three-game nightcap.

Injuries have taken a few big-name starters out of the Opening Day picture with Gerrit Cole, Justin Verlander and Kodai Senga among the arms that are sidelined. But aces like Corbin Burnes and Logan Webb will still be on the hill. Opening Day will also see Juan Soto's first game for the Yankees and Shohei Ohtani's home debut for his new team at Dodger Stadium -- and also his first regular-season game in front of home fans since news broke about a gambling scandal involving MLB's biggest star and his now-former interpreter.

Here's a complete look at the MLB Opening Day schedule.
