LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- It's almost time for Dodger baseball!

The Boys in Blue were back at Dodger Stadium on Monday playing an intrasquad game, with Clayton Kershaw pitching. For fans, it was a welcome sight after a season interrupted by the coronavirus.

Major League Baseball on Monday released a shortened 60-game schedule with the season slated to start July 23.

The Dodgers - featuring their marquee offseason acquisition Mookie Betts - are slated to open their season at home hosting the San Francisco Giants on July 23.
