At this week's "Peek Performance" event, the company announced "Friday Night Baseball," a new addition that brings select MLB games to the streaming service. While Apple did not announce exactly when the first games will stream, we may have an idea based on today's developments.

According to multiple reports, Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have reached an agreement that'll bring baseball back in April.

According to Jeff Passan at ESPN, the opening day for the 2022 season is rumored to occur on Thursday, April 7. If that holds true, "Friday Night Baseball" on Apple TV+ could debut as soon as the next day on Friday, April 8.

Whenever "Friday Night Baseball" does premiere on Apple TV+, the service will be streaming two different games every Friday night during the regular season.
