It is going to be a busy year of traveling for the Dodgers. The team will open the season in Sydney, Australia, against the Arizona Diamondbacks for a historic series on Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23. Will I go to Australia? I am not sure yet…
The Dodgers return to the U.S. and play at San Diego Monday, March 31 through Wednesday, April 2. Yes! I will be in San Diego for the Dodgers second Opening Day on the road.
From the Dodgers Press release:
The Dodgers’ home opener is Friday, April 4 against the San Francisco Giants and the club concludes the regular season at home against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, Sept. 28. American League teams that will visit Los Angeles throughout the 81-game schedule are the Detroit Tigers from April 8-9, the Chicago White Sox from June 2-4, the Cleveland Indians from June 30-July 2 and the rival Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim from Aug. 4-5.
Interleague road dates for the Dodgers in 2014 include travel to Minnesota (April 28-May 1), Kansas City (June 23-25 and Detroit (July 8-9). The Dodgers will head to Anaheim for a two-game Freeway Series Aug. 6-7. The Dodgers play a two-game series against Anaheim both at home and on the road as well as a two-game series against Detroit both home and away.
The holiday schedule for the Dodgers has them at home on Easter Sunday (Sunday, April 20 vs. ARI), Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 11 vs. SF), Memorial Day (Monday, May 26 vs. CIN) and Father’s Day (Sunday, June 15 vs. ARI).
I have never been to Kansas City and Detroit. Both of those road trips are mid-week. Then there is the SABR convention that will be held in Houston next year.
Dodgers will play the Cubs in September? Ok.. It is a four game series starting Thursday 7/18 to Sunday 7/21. Maybe it is time to go back to Chicago.
One thing about the schedule I am not liking is that the Dodgers will play in San Francisco on Jackie Robinson’s Day. I thought there was an agreement that the Dodgers will always be at home on Jackie’s Day. I hope that since this is a tentative schedule, this will changed.
Ok, so here is the
final scratch that. the last of the regular season schedule:
1-Star =9/1 SD, 9/10 AZ, 9/11 AZ
2-Star = 9/15 SF, 9/27 COL, 9/29 COL
3-Star = 9/9 AZ, 9/12 SF, 9/13 SF, 9/14 SF, 9/28 COL
4-Star = none
A trip to San Diego for the weekend 9/20 to 9/22 would be nice.

They are giving me a hard time at work because I have my Jackie Robinson jersey on (only day I can wear casual clothes) This guy tells me “Is Super Bowl weekend and lots of people at work are wearing Football gear but not Emma” “She could wear football or hockey but noooo….” I do have my purple and gold Dodger hat 🙂
The All-Star game is in New York on 7/16. Yankees come to Dodger Stadium 7/30 & 7/31 and Dodgers travel to Toronto 7/22 to 7/24. I’ve been to Rogers Centre when in 2007 I was sent to Toronto for a few days. The Blue Jays were in town playing against the Red Sox so I went to a game and saw Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch.

Thanks to Rene for reminding me that the Dodger games at Baltimore are in April. I had forgotten!
Ahhhh this is so cool! Thanks Mike!
I want to go to Baltimore. I have never been to Camden Yards. I have never been to Baltimore. I think I have been at the airport but that does not count.
For Opening Day, well is a Holiday for me but I have already asked my boss for a vacation day! He did give a hard time as is Fiscal Year-End closing at work but I reminded him I worked two days during the Holiday shutdown. He says that is the reason why he approved it but like I said, he knows Opening Day is MY religious Holiday.
So anyone have any tips for Baltimore?
