A look at the 2015 Rays Schedule

Yesterday, the preliminary 2015 schedule was released. It's preliminary schedule, so things could change, but let's take a look at what we have for now.

Here are some of the things I noticed:

  • The Rays open at home for sixth straight year. This year against the Orioles on April 6th. It will be a 3-game set.
  • The first road trip in 2015 will be a two-city tour, first to Miami from April 10th through 12th and then to Toronto from April 13th through the 16th.
  • West coast trips are June 1st through 7th (a two-city stop in Anaheim and Seattle) and August 21st through 23rd when the Rays visit Oakland.
  • Holiday games for this year are as follows:
    • The Jackie Robinson Day game is on the road in Toronto on April 15th.
    • The Memorial Day game will be at home against Seattle on May 25th.
    • The Fourth of July game will be on the road in the Bronx against the Yankees.
    • The Labor Day game will be on the road against the Tigers on September 7th.
    • And finally, the Patriots Day game will be on September 11th at home against the Red Sox.
  • The Rays will be facing some interesting NL opponents in 2015.
    • First time the Rays see the NL will be the fist half of the annual Citrus Series as the Rays travel to Miami on April 10th through 12th to face the Marlins. The Rays will also close out their interleague schedule finishing off the 2-part annual Citrus Series against the Marlins at home September 29th through October 1st.
    • Rays return to NL opponents for a two-game set in Atlanta on May 19th and 20th. The Rays will see Atlanta at home on August 11th and 12th.
    • The Rays will face the Washington National in a split home/road series. They will meet the 15th and 16th at Tropicana Field, and 17th and 18th at Nationals Park.
    • We will face the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philly from July 20th through the 22nd.
    • Finally the Rays will welcome the Mets to Tropicana Field for a 3-game set on August 7th through 9th.
  • The All-Star game is July 14th in Cincinnati.
  • The Rays will start the proverbial second half of the season after the All-Star Break with a 3-game set in north of the border in Toronto July 17th through 19th.
  • We see Boston the first time on April 21st and the last time on September 24th.
  • We see the Yankees the first time on April 17th and the last time on September 16th.
  • The 2015 road schedule will end for the Rays in Toronto on September 27th.
  • Rays close out the season at home on October 4th against the Blue Jays.
