ST. LOUIS, MO (WMC) - The St. Louis Cardinals will start the 2018 season earlier than they have ever started a season when they travel to Citi Field in New York City to play the Mets on March 29. Four extra off-days have been built into each teams schedule, causing an earlier start to the Major League Baseball season.
After a three-game series in New York, the Cards will go to Milwaukee for another three-game series. They host their home opener on April 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The schedule has the Cards facing the Chicago Cubs in St. Louis for three series that all fall on weekends, May 4-6, June 15-17, and July 27-29. The two teams will also square off against each other in the final series of the regular season in Chicago.
Game times, ticket pricing and availability, will be announced at a later date, all according to MLB.com.
