Baseball season is only a few short months away, and just thinking about it makes us feel warmer, like we’re sitting outside on a breezy summer day, leisurely chatting with friends — and then leaping to our feet as a ball goes flying out of the park. Can. Not. Wait. The only problem is we don’t always make it to the ballpark. That’s where MLB Sunday Leadoff comes in. 

For 19 Sundays in 2023, the first Major League Baseball game of the day will stream on Peacock, LIVE. Peacock and NBC sports just announced the full schedule of Sunday morning games for this season, and there are some seriously great matchups this year. It all starts on April 23 with the Philadelphia Phillies hosting the Colorado Rockies. With exciting players on both teams and an always-energetic Philly crowd, this is a fantastic way to kick off the slate. Other highlights include New York Yankees vs. Cincinnati Reds on May 21, the regular season-leading Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tampa Bay Rays on May 28, and Seattle Mariners vs. the World Series champion Houston Astros on August 20. That’s not even close to all the great matchups on offer this season. Check out the schedule online or season schedule below.
