Twins announce 2021 schedule

Seems odd with the first pitch of the 2020 season still 15 days away, but Major League Baseball and the Twins announced their 2021 schedule. The plan is to go back to the customary 162-game slate.

For the first time ever, the Twins will begin a season with Interleague play, as Opening Day on April 1 will have the Twins in Milwaukee.

That contest will start a six-game road trip against the Brewers (April 1-4) and Detroit Tigers (April 5-7). The Twins will then host Seattle at Target Field for the home opener on April 8, part of a seven-game homestand vs. the Mariners (April 8-11) and Red Sox (April 12-15).

Minnesota’s season-opening series in Milwaukee is part of the club’s 20 Interleague games vs. the National League Central Division in 2021. The Target Field Interleague schedule features a homestand against the Brewers (August 27-29) and Chicago Cubs (August 31-September 1). The Twins will also host the Pittsburgh Pirates (April 23-25) and Cincinnati Reds (June 21-22), while visiting the St. Louis Cardinals (July 30-August 1), Reds (August 3-4) and Cubs (September 21-22).

The best homestand might be June 8-13, with the Yankees and Astros at Target Field for three games apiece.

The Twins will play each of their American League Central Division rivals 19 times apiece.
