MLB 2013 Schedule Released: Interleague Play All Year, Yankees and Red Sox Open Season against Each Other
September 13, 2012 5:34 AM EST
The 2012 MLB Season hasn't even come to a close, but a tentative 2013 schedule has already been released.
The new schedule is unlike any one in the history of Major League Baseball. For the first time, interleague play will take place throughout the entire year.
The change comes as a result of the Astros moving to the American League. With Houston moving from the NL Central to the AL West, there will be 15 teams in each league. With an uneven number of teams in both leagues, an AL and NL squad will have to play each other each week.
Every team will play 20 interleague games in the season. They'll be played over eight different series.
In 2013, most teams will open on a Sunday, after starting on a Thursday and Friday in the past two years. The first game of the season is scheduled start on March 31 with ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball." The matchup has yet to be determined.
The Yankees are set to open the year at home against the Red Sox. The two AL East rivals will play their first series from April 1-3.
