It seems like just yesterday that the San Francisco Giants were celebrating their World Series win at the AT&T Park Stadium in California. Now, with just two months to go, baseball fans around the world are looking forward to the start of the 2015 Major League Baseball season, which begins at Chicago’s Wrigley Field Stadium on 5th April.
Kicking off the season, the St Louis Cardinals will be visiting the Chicago Cubs. The Cardinals had 90 wins to the Cubs’ 73 last year, but the odds could be in the Cubs’ favor if the home support alone is anything to go by.
Of course, the Cardinals and the Cubs is just one of a series of exciting games we should all be looking forward to for the 2015 season, as well as all the other additional delights of Major League Baseball. So what should we be looking forward to for the MLB Season 2015?
This year, the experts at Betsafe have tipped the World Series title winner to be the Washington Nationals, who currently have odds of 11/2 to win. One particularly exciting player we’re being told to watch out for is outfielder Michael Taylor, who experts claim will be a likely opening-day starter.
Of course, this could simply be down to the fact that Jayson Werth will be out with shoulder surgery, giving youngster Taylor the opportunity to step up to the plate and deliver. At just 23 years old, Taylor has shown his potential to take over this season – his athleticism has allowed him to develop offensively, giving him an incredible combination of power and speed.
What’s more, the players are not the only thing we should be keeping an eye out for in the 2015 season. Gamers everywhere are eagerly anticipating the release of RBI Baseball, which is returning with all its retro gaming glory.
The game, which is produced by Major League Baseball, is to be released for the second time, with both a console and a mobile version available. This year’s highlights include a complete set of authentic, redesigned major league ballparks, as well as complete 25-man rosters, stat tracking and online play.
Whether you’re a sports fan who loves to watch every game religiously or play along with the merchandise that comes with it, there’s plenty to look forward to for the Major League Baseball season 2015.
