Major League Baseball is intending to return to the usual 162-game regular season format next year. Mere days after announcing details for this summer, the Marlins revealed their full 2021 schedule on Thursday afternoon.
Opening Day will be held at Marlins Park on Thursday, April 1 against the interleague rival Rays (the schedule includes matchups with each of the other AL teams as well). The season ends at home with an October 1-3 series against the Phillies.
No game start times are available yet. Also, it is unclear whether any of the Mets series will be played in Puerto Rico—a trip to the island involving the two teams was planned for this past April before COVID-19 forced its cancelation.
FOX Sports Florida is expected to remain the Marlins’ local television partner, though their current contract expires after the 2020 campaign. They will need to negotiate an extension between now and then.
