Dodgers 2020 Opening Night vs. the Giants – Part of ESPN Exclusive Doubleheader



Opening day is 15 days away and the Los Angeles Dodgers are set to host the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium at 7:08 pm PT on Thursday the 23rd.

Now, same as it was before, ESPN will be the exclusive home of the broadcast as part of a doubleheader also featuring the New York Yankees and defending World Series champion Washington Nationals.

In conjunction with Major League Baseball, ESPN announced its 2020 MLB television schedule for Opening Night, Opening Day and Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell. The season will begin on Thursday, July 23, with two exclusive Opening Night presented by John Deere game telecasts on ESPN, including the New York Yankees and Gerrit Cole visiting the defending World Series Champion Washington Nationals and Max Scherzer at 7 p.m. ET. ESPN will continue its Opening Night coverage at 10 p.m. when the Los Angeles Dodgers and Mookie Betts host the San Francisco Giants and Johnny Cueto.

On Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts named Clayton Kershaw as the opening day starter for Los Angeles and he’s expected to face veteran hurler Johnny Cueto of the Giants.

This will also be the first deep-dive look at the newly renovated Dodger Stadium after undergoing a $100 million face lift in the long offseason.

Get ready, Dodgers Nation… It’s almost show time.

  1. This Dodger Girl is so excited that Opening Day is just 15 days away!! And even though baseball season will be a short we as Dodger Fans are so ready to welcome back Our Boys in Blue ?

    • I am so ready! With Clayton healthy and Betts and Bellinger—-this is our year. Actually a 2/5 year but better than nothing.

  2. Can’t wait for Dodgers to start up again. A small bit of normalcy. We really need this !!!!! I will be watching every game !!!!! Yahoo !!!!!

  3. This may not have an asterisk next to it because 2 teams got away with cheating and are still considered champions by mlb. Also it’s a fact the Dodgers would’ve been in the playoffs anyway this year whether it was 60 or 162
