Mariners vs Athletics: Season Opener In Japan - Game Time, TV Schedule, & More

The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics will open the 2012 MLB season in Japan early this morning with first pitch scheduled for 3:10am PST, which is 7:10 pm local time JST. If you're obsessed with baseball or do this for a living and absolutely need to watch the game live, I hope you've got your pot of coffee ready because it's going to be a late night. Someone at the Major League scheduling office must not have known about a little thing called 'time zones' or perhaps they would have scheduled it as a day game in Japan, but here we are. If you're planning on watching - here's what you need to know:

Teams: Mariners (67-94, 4th AL West, -29.0 GB) at Athletics (74-88, 3rd AL West, - 22.0 GB).

Gametime: Wednesday, 3:10 a.m. (PT), Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Felix Hernandez (Seattle, 14-4) vs. RHP Brandon McCarthy (Oakland, 9-9).

TV: The game will be shown live on MLB.tv and ROOT Sports locally, then tape-delayed on MLB Network at 6am PST.
