The Yanks are coming, plus a lot of other teams that Rockies fans don’t get a chance to see very often at Coors Field.
Major League Baseball released its 2023 schedule Wednesday and it features a balanced schedule for all 30 clubs across the league for the first time since interleague play was introduced in 1997.
For the Rockies, that means a rare visit from the Yankees on July 14-16.
The Rockies open their 2023 season on March 30 at San Diego to begin a four-game series at Petco Park. They then play two games at Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
The home opener is slated for April 6 against the Nationals.
For the first time in history, the Rockies will play all 29 big-league teams. The schedule includes 13 games against each National League West rival, two series at home and two on the road. It also includes one home and one road series against each NL East and Central team, and at least one series, either home or road, with each American League opponent.
The Rockies will play the Red Sox at Boston’s Fenway Park on June 12-14, while the Toronto Blue Jays come to Coors Field on Sept. 1-3.
The Rockies will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the franchise throughout the season, with special events celebrating the club’s historical milestones, and alumni appearances throughout the 2023 season.
The season concludes with a six-game homestand at Coors Field with four games against the Dodgers (Sept. 26-28, including a split doubleheader on Sept. 26) and three games against Minnesota (Sept. 29-Oct. 1).
