Dodgers News: NLDS Game Times Announced

It’s that time, ladies and gentlemen!

Major League Baseball has announced the game times for the NLDS this afternoon and it appears that the Dodgers have received the ‘late game’ schedule as they open no earlier than 5:37 pm PST.

The true game time for Games 1 and 2 is dependent on who emerges victorious in Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game. If the Washington Nationals win, the Dodgers will play them at 5:37 pm PST. If the Milwaukee Brewers win, the Dodgers will play them at 6:37 pm PST.

Good times to watch the Boys in Blue after work! In past seasons the Dodgers’ game times have been hit or miss, with some coming during the work day in the early game slate.

Umpire Crew

In addition, the umpire crew for the NLDS has been announced and there are some familiar names with some real tenure and experience:

In the past, the Dodgers have had some issues with Alfonso Marquez, most notably with Adrian Gonzalez in the 20176 NLCS. Ted Barrett, the crew chief, was the man behind the plate for the 18-inning marathon with the Boston Red Sox in last year’s World Series.

Overall

It is that time! October begins Tuesday and the festivities for the Dodgers begin on Thursday. Rush home from work, school, or wherever you are coming from and watch the Boys in Blue take on the Washington Nationals or the Milwaukee Brewers.
