With the Houston Astros move to the American League West next season, the schedules for Major League Baseball teams will look a little different next year. The Cardinals are set to play all the AL West teams, which includes a trip to Anaheim to face Albert Pujols and the Angels.
The Cardinals open the season on April 1 at Arizona, then head to San Francisco before their home opener the 8th. The Cardinals will host the Reds and Brewers. The Cardinals trip to Anaheim is July 2-4.
Under MLB’s new scheduling format, the Cardinals will play each of the other four National League Central teams 19 times during the year. The Cubs will make two weekend visits (Aug. 9-11 and Sept. 27-29) to Busch Stadium, as well as a weekday four-game series from June 17-20.
