Baltimore Orioles

Orioles’ 2023 schedule, featuring games against all 29 other teams and a visit from Buck Showalter’s Mets, released

The Orioles will begin a 2023 schedule featuring matchups with all 29 other major league teams March 30 on the road against the Boston Red Sox, marking the fifth straight season opener away from Camden Yards.

After that series, the Orioles visit the Texas Rangers for three games before their home opener April 6 against the New York Yankees.


As per Major League Baseball’s new collective bargaining agreement, the Orioles will now play all 29 other teams each season, which means fewer games against their American League East rivals. Rather than the usual 19 matchups with each divisional opponent, Baltimore will face the Red Sox, Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays 13 times each. They’ll continue to play a series each at home and on the road against teams from the AL West and the AL Central.

The Orioles will play all 29 other teams in 2023, which means fewer games against their American League East rivals.

“I do think it’s more fair, honestly,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said after the schedules were released Wednesday. “We’re still gonna play — how many games in our division, 13 times 4, so 52? So still a third of your schedule is against American League East teams, which is good. I think it’s also good to be able to see everybody else, too. I think that that’s a little bit more fair around the league. Play every team in the National League, I think that’s gonna be fun. I think it’s gonna be great for fans, also, to be able to see any team they want to see wherever they live. I just think it evens things out a little bit, honestly.”


Among their meetings with every National League team, the Orioles will host Buck Showalter’s New York Mets at Camden Yards in a series Aug. 4-6. Showalter managed the Orioles from 2010 to 2018 and led them to three postseason berths, including the AL East title in 2014. They will also face Manny Machado, the star infielder they traded at the 2018 deadline to kickstart their rebuild, former Washington Nationals star Juan Soto and the San Diego Padres on Aug. 14-16 at Petco Park. The Los Angeles Dodgers, the 2020 World Series champions, will visit Camden Yards shortly after the All-Star break on July 17-19.

Among the notable road trips is a visit June 2-4 to Oracle Park to take on the San Francisco Giants, who the Orioles haven’t faced the on the road since 2016, the last year they made the playoffs. Baltimore will also face the Milwaukee Brewers on the road for the first time since 2017 (June 6-8), return to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs (June 16-18) and take on the 2021 World Series champion Atlanta Braves on the road for the first time since 2018 (May 5-7).

The Orioles have home games on Easter (April 9 against the Yankees), Mother’s Day (May 14 against the Pittsburgh Pirates) and Memorial Day (May 29 against the Cleveland Guardians). They play at Yankee Stadium on the Fourth of July.

Baltimore ends the season with a six-game homestand featuring two games against Washington and four against Boston, with the regular-season finale scheduled for Oct. 1. The Orioles have only two scheduled days off in September.
