  • The Boston Red Sox might not be done with their (wildly frustrating) 2022 season just yet, but dates and opponents for the entirety of the 2023 season have been finalized.

    It will be a ‘first’ of sorts for the Red Sox and Major League Baseball as a whole, as the 2023 season will mark the first time in league history that all 30 teams will play one another in the same season. With interleague play now a full-time thing, divisional play will take a slight hit, as the Red Sox will now play their American League East foes 13 times each (opposed to the ‘normal’ 19 times per year.)

    This will probably feel like the longest season yet, too, as the season will begin in March and end in October. The good news this time around: Weather permitting, every single baseball team will be in action on Opening Day, meaning there will be no bizarre, multi-day wait for things to get started.

    So when does the potential fun get underway for the 2023 Red Sox?
