There will also be the first interleague game featuring the Houston Astros, who will host the Philadelphia Phillies at their Minute Maid field.

Something that above all is becoming a custom as long as interleague games are held at the beginning of the season, when they just started it was something new, today they are not so rare in the Major Leagues.

The collective bargaining agreement between Major League Baseball and the players association expires on December 1. Given the bitter relationship between the parties, a lockout or strike seems possible

Baseball has not had a work stoppage since a seven-and-a-half-month strike in 1994-95 that caused the first cancellation of the World Series in 90 years.
