DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers have released their full 2022 schedule, including their interleague matchups and the best home games.

The first game of the 2022 season is scheduled for March 31, and and the final game is scheduled for Oct. 2.

For the first time since 2000 -- the year Comerica Park opened -- Detroit will begin the season against an AL West team. In fact, the first seven games will all take place on the West Coast -- four against the Seattle Mariners and three against the Oakland Athletics.

The Tigers will return to Comerica Park for the first time April 8 to battle the Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox in a six-game home stand.

Next season’s schedule features interleague games against the mighty National League West Division. The Tigers will host the San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies and play road series against the Giants, Los Angeles Dodges and Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Tigers will also play their typical home and away series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

A split doubleheader with the Minnesota Twins will kick off the second half of the season on July 23 at Comerica Park.
