Major League Baseball has released the schedule for the 2021 season, just days after announcing the 2020 schedule. Opening Day for the Colorado Rockies will be on April 1, 2021 and for the first time since 2011, they will open the season at home with a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Rockies will be at home for Father’s Day, July 4th and Labor Day. Larry Walker’s #Retire33 weekend will be rescheduled to 2021, though no dates have been officially announced. Mother’s Day will be on the road and Memorial Day is a scheduled off-day.
The Rockies won’t see the Chicago Cubs until late into the season. They will welcome them to Coors Field in early August and then will face them at Wrigley Field later in the month. They also won’t see the Washington Nationals or Atlanta Braves until September.
Interleague games in 2021 will look very similar to 2020, with the Rockies only facing AL West teams. They will see all five teams, starting with the Houston Astros on April 20th. Below is a breakdown of when we will see each of the AL teams:
April 20 - 21, August 10 - 11
June 1 - 3, August 30 - September 1
June 4 - 6
June 22 - 23, July 20 - 21
Los Angeles Angels
July 26 - 28
The Rockies will close out the regular season in Arizona with a three-game road trip.
In addition to the official 2021 schedule the Rockies announced a few of their giveaways for 2021, including a Trevor Story bobblehead on April 3rd and a Charlie Blackmon bobblehead on July 4th.
Only 266 days until Opening Day 2021!
