Nats announce scheduled game times for 2022 season

The Nationals on Thursday morning announced the scheduled game times for the upcoming regular season.

First pitch for opening day against the Mets at Citi Field is scheduled for a 1:10 p.m. start on Thursday, March 31. Both subsequent games of the opening series on Saturday and Sunday are also starting at 1:10 p.m., possibly including the first time Max Scherzer faces the Nats as a member of the Mets.

The home opener at Nationals Park is scheduled for a 1:05 p.m. first pitch against the Phillies on Monday, April 4. The second game of that home-opening two-game set is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6.

The Nationals will have their traditional 1:05 p.m. starts for Sunday home games, except for a 12:05 p.m. start on June 19 for Juneteenth and the usual league-wide 3 p.m. EDT start time on the last day of the regular season, both games, coincidentally, against the Phillies.
