Days after releasing the revised 2020 60-game schedule, MLB announced the 2021 regular-season schedule Thursday.

The Braves’ 162-game season opens at Philadelphia on April 1, the fourth time in five years the Braves will open on the road. It begins a six-game trip in Philadelphia and Washington before the Braves’ home opener April 9 against the Phillies.

Like 2020, the Braves’ interleague opponents will come from the American League East. They face the Red Sox in a pair of two-game series, home (June 15-16) and away (May 25-26). They’ll also face the Yankees at home (April 20-21) and away (Aug. 23-24).

The Braves travel to Toronto on April 30-May 2. They play at the Orioles on Aug. 20-22 and host the Rays on July 16-18.

Fifteen of the Braves’ final 25 games will be at home. However, the team’s final five road series are against National League West teams. The Braves have a trip to Los Angeles and Colorado on Aug. 30-Sept. 5. Their final trip is a 10-gamer in San Francisco, Arizona and San Diego (Sept. 17-26).

Both scheduled three-city trips are in the season’s second half: The Braves go to Washington, Miami and Baltimore on Aug. 13-22.

Truist Park will host the 2021 All-Star game July 13. The All-Star break runs from July 12-15. It will be the first time the Braves hosted All-Star week since 2000 and third time since 1972, the Braves’ first time hosting in Atlanta.

The Braves end the season with a six-game homestand against the Phillies and Mets on Sept. 28-Oct. 3.
