Aug 12 2019, 11:41 am

The Toronto Blue Jays still have seven weeks left to play in their 2019 season, but their schedule for 2020 was released and includes several notable series.

Opening Day is set for Thursday, March 26 at Rogers Centre, with the Blue Jays kicking off the season with a four-game series at home to the Boston Red Sox.

From there, the Blue Jays will take a tour of some National League Central ballparks as they’ll face the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers for Interleague games.

As far as road trips go, the Blue Jays embark on their annual invasion of Seattle during their west coast swing, for a weekend series July 24-26. Thousands upon thousands of Blue Jays fans make the pilgrimage across the border to witness Canada’s team in action.

Toronto travels to Philadelphia April 6-7, they’ll be in Pittsburgh for a weekend series June 19-21, and a weekday series in Milwaukee June 22-24. Fans should circle that weekend series in Pittsburgh at PNC Park as a “must-attend,” as PNC is one of the most gorgeous parks to visit in Major League Baseball.

The Jays welcome the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs to Rogers Centre August 16-18, the St. Louis Cardinals August 18-19, and Toronto completes its home-and-home series against the Philadelphia Phillies September 15-16 in Toronto.

Fans hoping to catch the Blue Jays at home on Victoria Day, Canada Day, and Civic Day are in luck because the club will play at home for all three statutory holidays. Victoria Day Monday against Aaron Sanchez and the Houston Astros, Canada Day against the Chicago White Sox, and Civic Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Two games of note which the Blue Jays won’t be around for: Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, as the team will be on the road for both games. Check out the Blue Jays’ full 2020 schedule here:
