The 2014 MLB schedule has been released

Sep 10, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

Calendar

Major League Baseball  announced its 2014 regular season schedule today. As mentioned back in June, it will begin with an Opening Series — which the MLB press release did, indeed, capitalize — between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers in Sydney, Australia on Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23.

The non-Australian Opening Night takes place on Sunday, March 30th.  The teams have not yet been announced. I’m guessing they’ll do so after the playoffs are over. The remaining fourteen Opening Day games will take place on Monday, March 31. The final scheduled day of the 2014 regular season will be Sunday, September 28.

Other notable dates: The Draft will take place on Thursday, June 5 and the All-Star Game will take place at Target Field in Minneapolis on Tuesday, July 15. If you’re looking for your team’s individual schedule, please note that my sources tell me they will play 162 games, 81 of which will be at home. You didn’t hear that from me, though. Seriously, though: the individual teams’ websites are updating with 2014 schedules as we speak.

Now: Someone please forward this to the NFL so they can let us know if any of it interferes with their 2014 schedule. After all, it’ll be much easier for baseball to do the right thing and make way now than it will this time next year.

    Orioles at home on Thursday September 4th – in your face Goodell!!

      So your saying we should root for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl again to stick it to the NFL?

      • southpaw2k - Sep 10, 2013 at 3:51 PM

        The Padres, Yankees, Indians, Rangers, Rays, Twins, and Brewers are all home on Sept 4, in addition to the Orioles. I don’t think the Rangers are close enough to the Cowboys or Texans to result in any issues, but the rest of these teams probably do.

        Viva la chaos.

        Yankees are well away from MetLife Stadium, so that’s not an issue. Milwaukee doesn’t have an NFL team, and the Buccaneers, unlike the Rays, actually play in the City of Tampa. The Twins would have been a good one back when they shared the Met with the Vikings – anybody know if Target Field shares a parking lot? Couldn’t tell you if the Padres or Indians are close enough to inconvenience their NFL brethren, but let’s be serious, there’s not a snowball’s chance of the Browns or Chargers winning the Super Bowl.

        The Rangers’ and Cowboys’ stadia are next door to each other. The Rays on the other hand playi on the other side of the bay from the Bucs.

      You’re gonna get HBP for excessive celebration, if you keep that up.

    Reds vs. Cardinals Opening Day, that should be awesome!

  3. sportsdrenched - Sep 10, 2013 at 2:19 PM

    I still think MLB should make more of a production out of this. Maybe an hour long special on MLBN in PrimeTime with some washed up Reality TV Star and Disney TeenyBopper wash-out as host. Maybe invite some 90’s bands to play or something.

    Ok, nevermind. Reading about it on HBT works too.

    The great thing about being a Tigers fan is you NEVER have to worry about conflicting with an opening day celebration by the football team next door.

    “The remaining fourteen Opening Day games will take place on Monday, March 31.”

    Wrong. The Yankees and Astros open Tuesday, April 1.

    If you spent less time cramping your brain to come up with childish swipes at the NFL over an issue that is now five months old and an event that has come and gone, you might be able to avoid mistakes in your articles. Maybe we should roast you and take a cheap shot at you five months later for being wrong about a simple fact.

      Bitter?

    • kalinedrive - Sep 10, 2013 at 3:36 PM

      Bob, in honor of your childish pouting, I would like to call you a name. Do you prefer fucktard or asshat?

  6. Stiller43 - Sep 10, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    There goes craig crying again about something that was over months ago and didnt even happen…

  7. onbucky96 - Sep 10, 2013 at 3:26 PM

    Has this been approved by Herr Godell? He would be MOST displeased if MLB doesn’t cave to his demands.

    I guess Bob is not smiling Bob from the commercials a few years ago.

  9. steelers88 - Sep 10, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    Pirates might the hardest schedule. Cardinals, Dodgers, Braves, Reds, Rays, Yankees, Orioles, RedSox, and Tigers.

    • dan1111 - Sep 10, 2013 at 5:26 PM

      And the worst part is, they don’t get to play the Pirates.

      …oh wait, sorry, they are good now. Old habits die hard.

  10. stairwayto7 - Sep 10, 2013 at 4:47 PM

    Look at Pirates 1st month, they only play the N.L.Central! Also will ESPN have Yanks-RedSox on 10 times?

    • bh0673 - Sep 10, 2013 at 5:09 PM

      That stinks means too many Sunday night games I will have to turn off before the end since I like a lot of people have to work on Monday. Then again that goes the same for Sunday night Football 9 times out of 10 I have to turn the game off at half time.

  11. lvar12 - Sep 10, 2013 at 4:49 PM

    That’s why the NFL’s complaining didn’t make sense because MLB’s schedule is out so far in advance that the Ravens could have played the Sunday before and not on Thursday. Not MLB’s fault that the NFL thinks they have to make a production and wait months after the season to come up with a schedule.

  12. bh0673 - Sep 10, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    Wow somehow I think Larry Lucchino had a hand in setting up the Yankees 2014 schedule. They will be on the road almost the entire month playing against National League teams, what moron put this schedule together?

    • bh0673 - Sep 10, 2013 at 5:06 PM

      entire month of May

  13. uuddlrlrbastart - Sep 10, 2013 at 7:04 PM

    I don’t know how much of an impact these things actually have, but the Mets have the following road trips next year:

    Atlanta to Anaheim to Arizona
    Philly to Colorado to Miami
    Philly to Chicago to San Francisco
    St. Louis to Miami, back home for a 2 game series, followed by Pittsburgh and Atlanta
    San Diego to Seattle to Milwaukee
    Oakland to Los Angeles (for a grand total of 5 games)

    For those counting, that’s four separate trips to the west coast. Back when teams played outside their division twice per year instead of once, they still only made two west coast trips. I can only imagine other teams dealt with equally ridiculous scheduling this year and will next year and for as long as there is constant interleague play. But there has to be a better way.

    If I expected playoff contention, I’d be kind of pissed about that. I wonder if the organization is and how much say they have over the final schedule.
