Opening Day in Australia

This Saturday the Los Angeles Dodgers open their season internationally. They take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in Sydney, Australia, at the Syndey Cricket Ground.

The stadium holds a capacity of 46,000. It is mainly used for cricket and rugby, but on March 22 there will be regular season baseball beginning under these lights. The Summer Olympics in Sydney did host some baseball back in the year 2000, but this will be the first time the MLB ever opened a season in Australia.

Two time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw is expected to make the start for the Dodgers, while the Diamondbacks have yet to release who’s starting ever since a Patrick Corbin ligament injury causing him to miss the trip entirely.
