The SF Giants are right in the thick of the 2023 MLB season, holding a 49-41 record as we enter the second half of the season, but even with this success, it's never too early to look forward to the future.

SF Giants officially announce 2024 regular season schedule

On Thursday, Major League Baseball officially announced the 2024 regular season schedule, which will see the Giants open up their season on March 28th at Petco Park against the division rival San Diego Padres.

The Giants will then open up their home schedule with a battle against those same Padres on April 5th, in one of four series matchups against San Diego. The team will also battle Arizona, Los Angeles and Colorado four times throughout the year, with the last matchup against the fierce rival Dodgers coming early, as it takes place in July.

The team will also welcome the Yankees, Tigers, White Sox, Athletics, Astros, Blue Jays and Angels (hopefully to meet their former teammate) to Oracle Park, after playing all those teams on the road throughout the 2023 season. That leaves road trips to Texas, Seattle, Minnesota, Cleveland, Oakland, Baltimore, Kansas City, Tampa Bay and Boston throughout the year, including what could be one of the final Bay Bridge Series in July and August.

One standout event for the 2024 Giants will be their June 20 matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals, as it will take place in the oldest baseball stadium in the US at Rickwood Field in Birmingham Alabama. This stadium used to host the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro Leagues, where franchise legend Willie Mays played when he was younger, and the historic matchup should be an incredibly fun, unique, and thought-provoking event.

Ultimately, there are plenty of fun matchups throughout the year, and if the Giants can continue building on their success in 2023 and have a great off-season, they should have a team that's ready to compete in 2024 with this schedule.

On a different note, it is odd to see the new, balanced schedule with so few division games in September. That was one aspect of a fun, playoff race. Though, if you are eager to see the Giants play the Kansas City Royals or the Baltimore Orioles in the finals weeks of the season, you are in luck!
