The Los Angeles Dodgers are set for 2017 Opening Day against the San Diego Padres for a third year in a row. However, for a second consecutive year, the Opening Day game will be televised by ESPN to the national audience.
In the postseason, Dodgers games were not being broadcasted in the prime time spot. Hopefully that will change for the 2017 season.
The game is scheduled for Monday, April 3rd. ESPN is expected to televise seven MLB Opening Day games. Here is the complete list via MLB Communications team:
