The Baltimore Orioles announced that their updated 2020 season will open on Friday, July 24, at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox, as part of a season-opening, five-game road trip against the Red Sox (three games) and Miami Marlins (two games). The club will open the 2020 home schedule at Oriole Park against the Marlins on Wednesday, July 29. The new schedule calls for 60 games to be played in 66 days from July 24-September 27 and the Orioles will play all of their games in the Eastern Time Zone. This season’s July 24 opener marks the latest Opening Day in baseball history.
All 60 regular season games will be carried live on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) throughout an exclusive territory that covers a seven-state region. All games will also be broadcast on the Orioles Radio Network across more than 40 stations in seven states, including the flagship station of 105.7 The Fan (WJZ-FM). O’s Xtra, MASN’s pregame and postgame shows, will continue to air 30 minutes before and after each game.
The Orioles will also play three exhibition games during 2020 Summer Camp. The O’s will travel to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on July 19 to play the Phillies, Baltimore will host the Washington Nationals at Oriole Park on July 20, and the Orioles will visit Nationals Park on July 21. All three games will begin at 6:05 p.m. ET and will not be carried on MASN or the Orioles Radio Network.
The Orioles will play 10 games against each American League East divisional opponent throughout the season. The Tampa Bay Rays will play a total of seven games in Baltimore, July 31-August 2 and September 17-20. The New York Yankees will visit Camden Yards for six games, August 3-5 and September 4-6.

The updated 2020 Interleague slate features visits to Baltimore by the Miami Marlins (July 29-30), Washington Nationals (August 14-16), New York Mets (September 1-2), and Atlanta Braves (September 14-16). The Orioles’ road schedule against National League opponents will include visits to the Miami Marlins (July 27-28), Washington Nationals (August 7-9), Philadelphia Phillies (August 11-13), and New York Mets (September 8-9).
The club will host a home game on September 6 against the New York Yankees to mark the 25th anniversary of Cal Ripken, Jr.’s historic 2,131st consecutive game played. The club will also celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, granting women a constitutional right to vote, on August 18 at home against the Toronto Blue Jays.
At the start of the 2020 campaign, the Orioles, like many Major League teams, will not immediately play in front of spectators as part of a strict policy in the interest of public health and safety, as well as the safety of employees and players. The Orioles will continue to comply with local laws and orders while adhering to the guidelines set in place by public health professionals and will work with Major League Baseball to closely monitor this rapidly evolving situation. Policy updates regarding attendance will be communicated to fans if and when they become available.
