Highlights from the 2017 Yankees Schedule

The New York Yankees announced their tentative 2017 schedule this week and it’s time to start making plans. See the Yankees are going for it, presumably anyway, in 2017 and will have a young and exciting roster to check out so here are a few highlights for the 2017 regular season that I feel like you must see if you’re a Yankees fan. Don’t look too far ahead though, we still have a lot of work to do here yet in 2016. Enjoy.

The Yankees will end Spring Training 2017 with an exhibition game with the Atlanta Braves in their newly built SunTrust Park. I’m not sure, and won’t be until around January or February, whether the Yankees will play any other exhibition games with either MLB teams or college teams towards the end of spring training though so you will have to stay tuned for that. The game on March 31, 2017 is confirmed to be happening though down in Atlanta.

Opening Day for the Yankees is on Sunday, April 2nd down in Tampa, Florida as New York takes on the Tampa Bay Rays. You have to think that’s a Masahiro Tanaka vs. Chris Archer kind of afternoon inside Tropicana Field. The Yankees will play three games in Tampa and three games in Baltimore against the Orioles before welcoming the Tampa bay Rays to the Bronx for their home opener on Monday, April 10.

The Yankees and Mets play their split Subway Series again in 2017 with two games coming in Queens and two games coming in the Bronx on August 14 – August 17th while New York also faces off with the National League Central in Interleague Play. That includes series with the St. Louis Cardinals, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Cincinnati Reds at home while the team makes the trip to PNC Park to face the Pittsburgh Pirates, Wrigley Field to face the Chicago Cubs and the Great American Ballpark to hit home runs against the Cincinnati Reds.

2017 should be another fun season full of great series matchups, historic teams facing off head-to-head and I’m sure there will be a firework or two to be shot off. I’m not looking ahead whatsoever but I still can’t wait for next season. I mean, come on. The Yankees inside Wrigley Field? The St. Louis Cardinals inside Yankee Stadium? The Yankees down in Atlanta, even for an exhibition game, when I’m a Yankees fan displaced in Atlanta? What’s not to love?
