This Thursday (March 30), baseball is back! After a long off-season, fans are starting to get excited. Especially after the World Baseball Classic, which had Japan winning 3-2 over the USA in an exciting game. RELATED: 12 Things in Travel You Need to Know Today
All 30 teams will play on Thursday and according to NBC Sports, “the 2023 MLB Season will debut a few rule changes including bigger bases, a pitch timer, and defensive shift restrictions.
Bigger Bases: All bases, with the exception of home plate, will now be 18 inches square. Prior to this change, bases were 15 inches square.
Pitch Timer: Pitchers will now have 15 seconds to throw a pitch if the bases are empty and 20 seconds to throw a pitch if there’s a runner on base. Additionally, there will be a 30-second timer between batters.
Defensive Shift: All four infielders are required to be on the infield with two on each side of second base at the time a pitch is thrown.”

This should hopefully speed up the game a bit and make it more exciting. Just in time, T-Mobile is bringing back a popular promotion that I’ve written about for the last three years. Today through Tuesday, April 4 at 4:59 a.m. ET (one week from now), all T-Mobile users can redeem a free, year-long subscription to MLB.tv, which streams full, live MLB games. It’s a $149.99 value.
If you’re a T-Mobile user like I am, this means a couple of clicks gets you access to hundreds of out-of-market MLB games for free all season. And this year, it’s in addition to an MLB.tv subscription. All you have to do is sign up through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app using the instructions here. Just make sure you do it by April 12!
FYI: I took the photo above when I attended MLB’s Opening Day in 2014. It was in Sydney, Australia! Here are my photos.
