Matt Loede

Major League Baseball is already planning for 2021, and today they took their first step back towards a 162-game season as they released a full schedule for the league and each and every club.

The Indians slate for 2021 will kickoff on the road, as they will take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit on Thursday, April 1st.

The team will then turn around after three games with the Tigers and come home for their opener at Progressive Field against the Kansas City Royals on Monday, April 5th.

The opener is part of a short five-game homestand featuring two against the Royals, and then three against the Tigers on April 9th, 10th and 11th.

Highlights of the 2021 slate include a home game for the 4th of July for the first time since 2017 as the Tribe will host the Houston Astros.

Also the team will have eight “summer” weekends at Progressive Field, which starts Memorial Day weekend till the end of August.

· May 28-31 vs. Toronto Blue Jays & Chicago White Sox

· June 11-13 vs. Seattle Mariners

· July 1-4 vs. Houston Astros

· July 8-11 vs. Kansas City Royals

· July 22-25 vs. Tampa Bay Rays

· Aug. 6-8 vs. Detroit Tigers

· Aug. 20-22 vs. Los Angeles Angels

· Aug. 27-29 vs. Boston Red Sox

As far as 2021 Interleague goes, the Indians will play the National League Central, just like they are in the 2020 season.

Home Interleague opponents in 2021 include the Cincinnati Reds (May 7th-9th), Chicago Cubs (May 11th-12th), St. Louis Cardinals (July 27th-28th) and Milwaukee Brewers (Sept. 10th-12th).

In terms of homestands, the Tribe has two nine-game homestands, its longest of the season. The first will be April 20th to the 28th against the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins.

The second will be in late August (20th to the 29th) against the Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox.

The regular season for the Indians in 2021 will wrap up with a six-game road swing, as they will play in Kansas City on September 28th, 29th and 30th, then travel for three in Texas against the Rangers on October 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
