Disappointed in the Red Sox’s trade deadline and performance since? If so, it’s now much easier to start looking ahead to next year. Major League Baseball announced their 2022 season schedule on Wednesday, meaning next year’s Red Sox slate is set.

The team will open the season at home for the third straight year, hosting the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday March 31. That will be a six-game homestand, before the first road trip of the year begins with the first matchup against the Yankees – a three-game weekend set.

Interleague play begins for the Red Sox in mid-may, with a two-game weekday series in Atlanta. It’s the only time the Sox will play in an NL park over the first three months of the season.

Early July may be the most anticipated series of the season right now. The Red Sox will start the month with a three-game weekend set against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It will be the first time the Sox have been to Wrigley since 2012, and just the third time since 1918 (they also went in 2005).
