The Phillies will open the 2019 Major League baseball season against the Atlanta Braves on March 31st in Philadelphia.

It will be the first Sunday night baseball game of the season between two teams that figure to be in play for the NL East and it could be a good indicator that the Phillies might be a big player in free agency.

They have been rumored to be in on some big free agents. Phillies owner John Middleton recent said he expects to “maybe even be a little stupid” about how much money the Phillies will spend this winter.
