Pitchers and catchers are set to report in less than two weeks. With the season quickly approaching, Major League Baseball has finally announced game times for the 2023 regular season. The Atlanta Braves open up the season on Thursday, March 30 at Nationals Park. First pitch is set for 1:05 ET.

Major League Baseball is testing out a new scheduling method for 2023; each team will play 52 games against divisional opponents, 64 intraleague games, and 46 interleague games.

The Braves look to carry their home win streak into the 2023 season. In 2022, the club put together an impressive .679 win percentage when playing at Truist Park.

A full schedule of television and radio broadcasting has not been announced but will be updated as soon as it comes available.
