Cubs, Major League Baseball Announce 2011 Schedule


Major League Baseball and the Chicago Cubs today announced the tentative 2011 regular season schedule.  Chicago will open its 136th season Friday, April 1 at Wrigley Field against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Cubs will begin the 2011 campaign home for just the second time in the last 10 seasons, joining the 2008 campaign that began on March 31 vs. Milwaukee. The season-opening homestand features three games against Pittsburgh (April 1-3) and three games against Arizona April 4-6.

The 2011 schedule features five interleague series, including the traditional home-and-home sets against the Chicago White Sox (July 1-3 at Wrigley Field, June 20-22 at U.S. Cellular Field) as well as the club’s first-ever regular season visit to play the Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston from May 20-22 (the Cubs have played regular season games against the Boston Braves from 1914-15 and World Series games against the Red Sox in 1918 at Fenway Park). The Cubs will host the New York Yankees June 17-19 and visit the Kansas City Royals June 24-26.
