The New York Yankees announced their schedule for the 2013 Major League season and some old rivalries will be renewed. The Bombers will be hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers (June 18-19) and San Francisco Giants (Sept 20-22) at Yankee Stadium, conjuring up memories of the old Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants days. Many of the old-timers who remember that New York was a three team town before 1958 will enjoy the nostalgic feel of the games.
The Yankees will travel to the West Coast to visit Dodgers Stadium (July 30-31), Coors Field in Colorado (May 7-9) and PETCO Park in San Diego (Aug. 2-4).
Inter league this next year will not be regulated to a few weeks in a row in the summer, but be scattered through out the schedule for the entire season. The National League teams the Yankees will face next year include the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants. They will face at least one National League team each month of the season.
New York opens the season at home on April 1 against the Boston Red Sox for a three-game series. Boston will return for two more meetings at the Stadium (May 31-June 2, Sept. 5-8) and the Yankees will play at Fenway Park (July 19-21, Aug. 16-18, Sept. 13-15).
As usual the Yankees and New York Mets will meet, but with a twist playing four straight games in May with two at each ball park. The Subway Series will be (May 27-28) in Citi Field and (May 29-30) at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees will conclude their home regular season against the Tampa Bay Rays (Sept. 24-26) for a three game series. New York will end their season on the road against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park (Sept. 27-29).
