DENVER (KDVR) – Take me out to the ball game… or at least let me watch it on TV.
The Colorado Rockies’ 2020 schedule is out and it’s… weird.
The MLB season begins July 23 with two games; The New York Yankees vs the Washington Nationals at 7 p.m. eastern and the San Francisco Giants vs the Los Angeles Dodgers at 10 p.m. eastern.
The Colorado Rockies kick off their season the following day in the new Texas Rangers stadium. Their first game home at Coors Field comes Friday, July 31 against the San Diego Padres.
The Rockies final home game is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 20 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. They then finish on the road with a 4-game set in San Francisco and three games against the Diamondbacks.
According to a press release from the club, the Rockies’ hope to allow a limited number of fans to attend 2020 home games at Coors Field.
The club says they have been working with city and state health officials, as well as Major League Baseball, “to finalize a plan that adheres to strict health protocols and ensures fan safety.”
The Rockies will play the following teams this year:
- Texas Rangers
- Oakland Athletics
- San Diego Padres
- San Francisco Giants
- Seattle Mariners
- Arizona Diamondbacks
- Houston Astros
- Los Angeles Dodgers
- Los Angeles Angels
Because of the condensed 60-game schedule, the Rockies only have one day off in August.
The teams’ longest streak of consecutive games is 20, running from Aug. 14 to Sept. 2. This includes three home stands and three separate road trips.
