As hard as it is to think about 2022 at the present moment, the schedule-makers always work in advance to assist teams in setting up future plans. So while we still have a couple months to go in the 2021 campaign, the 2022 season schedule is already out for all 30 MLB teams.
Opening Day for the Yankees is March 31st against the Rangers at Globe Life Field. They begin the season with a six-game swing in Texas (facing those lovable Astros along the way) before returning to the Bronx on April 7th for the Yankee Stadium home opener against — you guessed it — the Red Sox.
From then on, the season progresses fairly normally. There are a whole bunch of AL East and AL Central matchups through the first couple months. In fact, the Yankees won’t make a West Coast trip until August, when they have showdowns in Seattle, Oakland, and Anaheim. That Seattle visit is actually part of a very weird nine-game road trip from August 5th through August 14th, when the Yankees will travel from St. Louis to Seattle to Boston in a 10-day span. Joy. (Also, the Yankees won’t play on July 4th for some reason. Odd.)
Speaking of St. Louis, the Yankees’ designated interleague division opponent for 2022 is the NL Central. The Bombers haven’t faced any NL Central teams since 2017, but next year, they’ll face the Cubs, Cardinals, Pirates, Reds, and Brewers. Of course, they will also face the Mets in the annual Subway Series rivalry games, first in a two-game set at Citi Field on July 26th and 27th, and then back at Yankee Stadium for a pair on August 22nd and 23rd.
The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will be at Dodger Stadium on July 19th, and the regular season ends with a three-game homestand against the Orioles from September 30th through October 2nd.
