At 6 pm ET, Major League Baseball announced the full 2020 regular-season schedule. For the Phillies, the season begins and ends against Florida foes. They will open up against the Miami Marlins, their original Opening Day opponent, on Friday, June 24 at Citizens Bank Park. They will conclude the season against one of the best teams in baseball, the Tampa Bays Rays at Tropicana Field.

The Phillies will play 10 games each against NL East opponents: the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, Washington Nationals and Marlins.

Their final 20 games will be split up against their regional rivals in the American League: six home and away games against the Toronto Blue Jays, three away games against the Rays, a four-game home-and-home split against the New York Yankees, a four-game home-and-home split against the Boston Red Sox and three games at home against the Baltimore Orioles.

Here is the sequence of the 2020 schedule:

  • 3 at home vs. Marlins
  • 2 at home vs. Yankees
  • 2 away vs. Yankees
  • 3 away vs. Blue Jays
  • 3 away vs. Marlins
  • 4 at home vs. Braves
  • 3 at home vs. Orioles
  • 3 at home vs. Mets
  • 2 away vs. Red Sox
  • 2 away vs. Braves
  • 3 away vs. Nationals
  • 3 at home vs. Braves
  • 4 at home vs. Nationals
  • 4 away vs. Mets
  • 2 at home vs. Red Sox
  • 4 away vs. Marlins
  • 3 at home vs. Mets
  • 3 at home vs. Blue Jays
  • 3 away vs. Nationals
  • 3 away vs. Rays

The Phillies will also play against the Nationals in D.C. in an exhibition game on July 18. More exhibition games should be announced soon.

Here is the full calendar of games.

It should be noted that the completion of the 2020 season or even the beginning of the season is contingent upon a lot of things going right for MLB. An outbreak within any of the thirty clubs could spell disaster for the league’s plans to stage a season. Furthermore, many clubs around the league have experienced difficulties when it comes to both administering and shipping tests to the league’s labs in Utah. The division-rival Nationals are among a handful of teams that either had to cancel or push back workouts due to testing delays. If a lag in testing continues, the chances of getting the regular season off the ground will diminish dramatically.

On that note, play ball?
