Opening Day of the 2022 MLB season took place on Thursday, April 7 featuring seven games (Red Sox vs. Yankees and Mariners vs. Twins were both postponed due to weather).
After a 99-day-lockout, this season will still consist of a total of 162 games and for the very first time, Peacock will be the exclusive home to a new MLB game of the week on Sunday mornings.
The first game on Peacock will feature a match-up between the Chicago White Sox vs. Boston Red Sox from Fenway Park on May 8 at 11:30 a.m. ET. The game will also be available on the NBC broadcast network. However, the remaining 17 games will be available exclusively on Peacock’s premium service. See below for the full 2022 MLB on Peacock schedule.
Will there be additional MLB content on Peacock?
Yes! In addition to the 18 games listed on the schedule below, Peacock will also feature MLB classic games, award-winning documentaries from the MLB Film & Video Archive, and highlight packages available on-demand on a new MLB hub.
Additionally, the All-Star Futures Game, taking place in Los Angeles on July 16, at Dodger Stadium will be exclusively featured on Peacock.
This is far from the first foray into baseball broadcasting for NBC. The first MLB television broadcast was a 1939 Cincinnati Reds-Brooklyn Dodgers doubleheader on W2XBS (the precursor to WNBC-TV) in New York. NBC Sports played host to the first World Series broadcast in 1947, the first All-Star Game nationally broadcast in 1952, and has televised 39 World Series. From 1957-2000, NBC Sports was home to extensive baseball programming, including Game of the Week and Monday Night Baseball telecasts and more than 30 All-Star Games.
