Indians, Angels Open MLB Season March 31

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Cleveland Indians and Anaheim Angels will get a jump on baseball's other 28 teams, opening the upcoming season on Sunday, March 31 at Edison International Field.

The game, originally scheduled a day later, will be the only one on the schedule that Sunday, and will be televised by ESPN starting at 5:05 p.m. PST.

Because baseball shifted opening day to Sunday, teams can start spring training workouts on Feb. 14, a day earlier than originally scheduled.
