For all but two of the teams in Major League Baseball, the season opener is more than a week away.
However, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks will start the regular season tonight when they open a two-game series at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia.
As expected, former Highland Park standout Clayton Kershaw will start the opener for the Dodgers. Kershaw, of course, won his second National League Cy Young Award over the winter and signed a record contract extension.
In the other dugout, former HP pitcher Bo Schultz is on the active roster for the Diamondbacks and could make his MLB debut during the series.
Most of us will have to adjust our sleep patterns to see the game, however. It will air live on MLB Network at 3 a.m.
