Just Announced: Cubs host Cardinals for MLB Opening Night!

The countdown to relevant baseball begins anew, as the Chicago Cubs have announced that they will host the St. Louis Cardinals for MLB Opening Night on Sunday, April 5, at 7:05 PM Chicago time on ESPN2.

Originally the opening day was supposed to be April 6, which was the Monday after that Sunday, but it appears the Cubs’ impending run at contention has caught the eye of the world (or at least the guys running ESPN) and so we have the change in plans.  That’s one less day to wait for Cubs baseball, so I’m okay with that.  Now I wonder if that means the Cubs will have two days off until their next game in the series instead of just the one?  Here’s the schedule for those of you also still pining for baseball.

 

UPDATE 10:25 AM: The Cubs are currently fixing up their online schedule, but the folks at CBS say that the team will just have one off day between the opener and the second game in the series, effectively shifting the games a day each:

The Cubs’ 2015 season opener against the Cardinals has been moved up a day and will be showcased on ESPN2 on MLB’s Opening Night. The game will start at 7:05 p.m. It was previously scheduled for Monday, April 6 in the afternoon.

It will mark the first Opening Night in Wrigley Field history.

The Cubs and Cardinals will now have an off-day on April 6 before playing at 7:05 p.m. on April 7 and at 1:20 p.m. on April 8.

Exciting!
