The MLB has released the 2023 schedules for each team in the league. As a result, next season will begin a new era in the scheduling format. There will consequently be fewer division games, and each club will play all other 29 teams in the regular season for the first time ever. The Milwaukee Brewers schedule features several intriguing matchups. Here are some highlights:
Brewers Schedule Begins & Ends With Cubbies
The Brewers schedule kicks off at Wrigley Field on March 30. It will be the first Opening Day since 1968 that features every team playing. It ends in Milwaukee on the first day of October, also against the Cubs. In addition, the Brewers play just two other series vs. Chicago in 2023, at home in July and on the road in late August.
Ohtani & Trout Come to Town
Barring any trades by the Halos, Brewers fans will subsequently be treated to watching Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout play on April 28-30.
Houston Astros Come to Town
American Family Field will certainly be rocking in late May as the Houston Astros are on the Brewers schedule to visit Milwaukee.
Adley Rutschman & Upstart Baltimore
Young catching phenom Adley Rutschman and his upstart Baltimore Orioles visit the Brewers for three games in early June.
Six July Games On the Brewers Against Defending Champs
In consecutive weekends, the Brewers face off six times in ten days against the current defending World Series Champion Atlanta Braves. July 21-23 is in Milwaukee, with three more games at Truist Park in Atlanta the following weekend.
Brewers Schedule Includes a Trip to Yankee Stadium
The Brewers will travel to Yankee Stadium in the thick of the 2023 pennant race in September. Therefore Milwaukee faces the Bronx Bombers for three games from the 8th through the 10th. This is certainly an excellent opportunity for Brewers fans to travel and maybe even make the three-to-four-hour trip to Cooperstown.
Meanwhile, with the new balanced MLB schedule, the Brewers will play a road series vs. each American League team every other year. This means that in 2024 the team will play in Fenway Park. Milwaukee hosts the Redsox next season for three games in late April.
Fewer division games and a balanced inter-league Brewers schedule should consequently be a very intriguing change to the status quo.
