#Cubs announce 2016 schedule

The Cubs announced the tentative 2016 regular season schedule. They will open their 141st season at Anaheim against the Angels on April 5. The home opener at Wrigley Field will be April 11 vs the Reds.

After two games vs the Angels, the Cubs will play the D-backs April 7-10, then begin season-opening homestand vs the Reds on April 11 and 13-14, and the Rockies, April 15-17.

The 2016 schedule features Interleague play against the AL West plus the home-and-home crosstown series with the White Sox, which features two-game series July 25-26 at U.S. Cellular Field, and July 27-28 at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs will play host to the Rangers July 15-17; the Mariners, July 29-31; and the Angels, Aug. 9-10. The Cubs travel to Anaheim to play the Angels at the start of the season and play at Oakland Aug. 5-7 and at Houston Sept. 9-11. The season-opening series against the Angels is the Cubs’ lone Interleague series prior to the All-Star break.

The Cubs 2016 tentative schedule features five three-series homestands and five three-city road trips (after only two three-series homestands and two three-city road trips in 2015).

The Cubs are scheduled to host four holiday games in 2016: Mother’s Day, May 8 vs. the Nationals; Memorial Day vs. May 30 vs. the Dodgers; Father’s Day, June 19 vs. the Pirates; and the Fourth of July vs. the Reds. The Cubs will be on the road for Labor Day Monday, Sept. 5 in Milwaukee.

It’s nice to see they will begin the season in a warm climate. Maybe the warm weather teams should play host for the first two weeks of the season, buying some time for the colder climes of the mid west and east coast.

Nice observation joey

Cant wait for opening night 2016 . Already planning to attend .

Obviously, Clash of Clans, released Three Decade after Dune can draw on higher innovation to keep fans linkeded for longer.
