When Does Baseball Season Start?

It’s almost time for baseball season! Get ready by finding out when your favorite team’s first game is.


Baseball season typically runs from late March/early April through late September/early October. Postseason games can extend into November. The length of the regular season varies slightly from year to year, but is generally around 162 games.

The History of Baseball

The history of baseball can be traced back to the 18th century, when a game similar to the modern sport was played in England. However, the modern game of baseball traces its origins to the United States, where it was invented by Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, New York in 1839.

The first professional baseball team was formed in 1869, and the first professional league was established in 1871. The first World Series was played in 1903.

Baseball is now one of the most popular sports in the United States, and is also popular in countries such as Japan and Cuba.

The First Professional Baseball League

The first professional baseball league was the National League, which was founded in 1876. The season typically starts in April and ends in October.

The Modern Baseball Era

The modern baseball era began in 1901 with the founding of the American League. The two leagues—the National League and the American League—competed against each other until they merged into one league in 2000.

During the regular season, each team plays 162 games. The season starts in late March or early April and ends in October. The team with the best record through those162 games (the “regular season”) earns a berth (a spot) in the post-season playoffs.

The post-season typically begins in late October and can last into November if a “Game 7” is necessary to determine the World Series champion.

Baseball Today

This year, baseball season begins on Thursday, March 28. Most teams will play their first games of the season that day, although a few will start on Friday, March 29. The season will end on Sunday, September 29.


In conclusion, baseball season starts in late March/early April. The specific date varies from year to year, but it is always around that time. Spring training usually starts in February, so if you’re a fan of the sport, be sure to keep an eye out for that. Thanks for reading!
