Minor League Baseball will officially kick off the 2022 season on April 5th. Put it on your calendar. And download the MiLB app if you haven’t already. It’s terrific. You can expect a full season from our beloved minor league system. For example, the Triple-A Iowa Cubs (CHC) are scheduled to play 155 games. (75 home, 80 away — April through Sept.)
ESPN has announced that it will air over 200 college baseball games on its premium networks and will stream over 2,000 across its digital platforms. Division I games are set to air beginning February 18th showing Rice vs. top-ranked Texas.

The KBO continues to impress us with their handling of the game’s evolution, their incredible fan culture and game atmosphere, and overall solid baseball.
