Dylan Bundy will start the season opener again this year. The Angels 2021 season starts later today when they will face the White Sox at home. Tune in at 7:10 PM Pacific time. Due to an easing of the lockdown, more Angels tickets might be available, if it’s not already too late to snap them up. If you wish to attend in person, there are a few new rules.
