With the calendar turning to February, we can accurately say baseball will be back next month.

The Royals will open the 2023 Major League Baseball season on March 30. That’s when the Minnesota Twins will be at Kauffman Stadium to face the Royals on opening day.

First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m.

Tickets for that contest and the rest of the Royals’ 81-game home slate will go on sale Friday, the team announced.

“This is an exciting time for the team and fans,” Kayla Shively, Royals senior director of ticket sales and services, said in a release. “When single-game tickets go on sale, this is one of the first signs of how close we are to hitting the field.”

The Royals said the team’s Price Chop Mondays promotion means single-game ticket prices will be as low as $10. Tickets for opening day will start at $29.

Tickets will be sold through the Royals’ official website or the MLB Ballpark app.

The Royals, who had a 65-97 record last year, will open their first season with Matt Quatraro as manager. He replaced Mike Matheny in the offseason.

This will also be the first opening day with J.J. Picollo as general manager. He took over for Dayton Moore, who was fired in September.
