Angels announce 2018 season schedule

ANAHEIM -- The Angels will open their season in Oakland for the second consecutive year, kicking off their 2018 campaign on March 29 against the A's.

Angels' 2018 season schedule 

Every Major League team will begin play next season on March 29 to accommodate the extra off-days that will be incorporated into the schedule as part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The Angels will host the Indians on April 2 in their home opener and will close out their season against the A's on Sept. 30 at Angel Stadium. In July, they will have a 25-day stretch in which they will not have to leave Southern California -- with six games at home, four games at Dodger Stadium, four days off for the All-Star break and 10 more games at home before an off-day.

The Angels will play their Interleague slate against the National League West, hosting the Giants, D-backs, Rockies and Dodgers, and traveling to Colorado, San Diego, Arizona and Dodger Stadium.
