It seems like last year isn’t that far away, but Opening Day of the 2023 MLB season is almost here. Plenty of offseason moves should get things moving around the league, and the World Baseball Classic even gave us some much-needed access to get those spring juices flowing.

There are some very successful teams that have made big changes over the winter and will be looking to take the lead from the start. The NL East is shaping up to be extremely strong, with the 100+ wins by the Braves and Mets running alongside the postseason favorite Phillies. In the NL West, both the Dodgers and Padres have big plans that are sure to seat them quite nicely into October.

Always a big contender, the Yankees finished strong last year but just couldn’t pull it off. The Blue Jays and Rays also made some offseason changes, which should keep them going strong into the fall.

Of course, we can’t forget the defending champion Houston Astros who have dominated the division in recent years. The Mariners may also have something to prove in the west as well.

Whatever your favorite team, there is sure to be plenty of action out of the gate. We don’t even have to wait until April for baseball this year as Opening Day of the 2023 MLB season kicks off on March 30th.

Read on to find out how you can watch your favorites all season long with an MLB live stream.

MLB Live Stream – Watch every game in the US without cable

How to watch MLB blackout games and stream baseball from abroad

MLB blackout rules mean you can’t use his otherwise complete MLB.TV (opens in a new tab) streaming service to watch teams within your market – fine for Yankees fans living in Seattle, for example, but not so great for those in the Bronx.

It’s increasingly proving to be a real pain for wire cutters, but luckily VPNs help you get around this by allowing you to transfer your IP address to a different location. This means that if you are an off-market fan who happens to be traveling to your team’s home, for example, you can still watch the game without problems (opens in a new tab).

A VPN will also work when you try to access your regular MLB streaming service (or any other sports and entertainment streaming service) from abroad when geo-restrictions would otherwise block coverage. VPNs are legal, secure, and easy to use.

MLB TV is still by far the best way to watch all of your team’s games for the 2023 season, but only if you live out of business. Most people probably follow a local team, so MLB TV isn’t the best option for everyone. Thankfully, there are a handful of streaming services that have most of the major sports networks and regional sports networks (RSNs), so you won’t have to miss a beat for the 2023 season.

What’s new for the 2023 MLB season?

For the 2023 season, MLB has implemented a few new changes to speed up play, much to the chagrin of players and fans. With the rules fully tested in the minor leagues last year, then introduced during the preseason, it seems like it’s going to take some time for everyone to fully catch on.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s new:

Step Timer: Perhaps the biggest change is the introduction of pitch clock. Pitchers (or hitters) will no longer have all the time in the world to do their thing. Pitchers will now have 15 seconds to work with empty bases and 20 seconds with runners. Pitchers may step off the pitcher’s plate twice without penalty by resetting the clock. A pitch clock violation will result in a called ball.

On the flip side, a batter must be in the box with at least 8 seconds left on the clock and is allowed one timeout per plate appearance.

Travel restrictions: The defensive shift, prevalent in recent years, is more or less gone. Instead of being able to position themselves wherever they want, two infielders must now be positioned on each side of second base at the outfield. All four infielders must have both feet within the furthest outward boundary of the infield when the pitcher is on his plate. Any violations here will receive an automatic ball.

Bigger bases: Perhaps the most embarrassing change, now the basics are bigger too. Gone are the old 15″ bases. Here are the awkwardly larger 18″ bases. The hope is that players are encouraged to steal more frequently and also keep player safety in mind.

Auto Runner: It is not new new, but as we’ve seen in recent seasons, there will still be an autorunner on second base after the ninth inning.

Position of players throwing: There are also some restrictions on position players used as bowlers. Position players are only allowed to hit the pile if a game goes into extra innings, the team is trailing by at least eight runs, or the team is winning by at least 10 runs in the ninth inning.

Highlights from the 2023 MLB schedule

While it would make no sense for us to list the entire MLB 2023 schedule here, there are some big noteworthy games we wanted to broadcast. In addition to some heated opening day matches, there are some great rivalries and some destination games in other parts of the world. July will see a much-needed All-Star break before things roll over into October.
