MLB This Week: Labor Day

This is a slightly jumbled-up week in MLB.

Monday is Labor Day in the States so we have a whole batch of early MLB games to enjoy, but from them on there’s very little pre-midnight UK time action for us to enjoy at a convenient time.

Here are the pre-midnight starts for this working week in any case.

All times are in BST.
