Major League Baseball is returning for the 2024 season, which means ESPN Fantasy Baseball is also returning!
When will the season begin?
The 2024 ESPN Fantasy Baseball game is live now. MLB's Opening Day is scheduled for March 28, 2024.
However, the 2024 MLB championship season will begin with the first-ever regular season games in Korea as the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres meet for two games in Seoul, South Korea, on March 20-21, 2024.
Seoul Series Impact on ESPN Fantasy Baseball
- Leagues that complete their draft any time before the last game starts on March 31, 2024, will include points earned during the Seoul Series (and any other MLB games played starting on March 28) in the first matchup period.
- Only the games played in Seoul will be counted for scoring prior to Opening Day on March 28.
- Players drafted after games have been played will be placed in their eligible position in the order in which they are drafted. For example, the first Catcher you draft will be assigned to the Catcher (C) position on your roster; the second Catcher will be assigned to the Utility (U) position (if available and empty) or your Bench, and so on.
- Team managers can not retroactively change rosters for games that have already been played.
