MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WFRV) – While the Brew Crew continues to focus on this year and try to get back into the playoff race, the MLB has released every team’s 2023 schedule.

The Brewers will open 2023 against their cross-state rival, the Chicago Cubs, at Wrigley Field on Thursday, March 30. This is the second consecutive season Milwaukee will open in Chicago and the third in four years.

Following the opening series in Chicago, the Brewers will return home to American Family Field and host the New York Mets on April 3-5 and the St. Louis Cardinals on April 7-9 for the season’s first homestand.

Under Major League Baseball’s new balanced schedule, each team will face the other 29 teams annually, with home sites in interleague play alternating every other year. The Brewers will play 46 interleague games in 2023, a 26-game increase from 2022.

It will be the first trip to the City of Milwaukee for the Angeles and Athletics since 2016, while the Red Sox and Orioles will make their first visit since 2017.

The Brewers will travel to face the Seattle Mariners (April 17-19), Tampa Bay Rays (May 19-21), Toronto Blue Jays (May 30-June 1), Minnesota Twins (June 13-14), Cleveland Guardians (June 23-25), Chicago White Sox (Aug. 11-13), Texas Rangers (Aug. 18-20) and New York Yankees (Sept. 8-10).
