The Los Angeles Dodgers will open the 2019 season against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, March 28, host marquee matchups against the Giants, Angels, Cubs and Yankees, and play home games during nearly every summer holiday next season, Major League Baseball announced today with the release of next year's preliminary schedule. 
The Dodgers will welcome the Yankees to Dodger Stadium for the first time since 2013 during a three-game weekend series Aug. 23-25, and also take on the rest of the American League East as well as the Angels in its Interleague matchups. Los Angeles will host the Angels (July 23-24), Blue Jays (August 20-22) and Rays (Sept. 17-18), and travel to Tampa Bay (May 21-22), Anaheim (June 10-11), Boston (July 12-14) and Baltimore (Sept. 10-12) during Interleague play.
Dodger Stadium will once again be the place to be during the summer holidays, with home games on Mother's Day (May 12 vs. Nationals), Memorial Day (May 27 vs. Mets), Father's Day (June 16 vs. Cubs), Independence Day (July 4 vs. Padres) and Labor Day (Sept. 2 vs. Rockies). The Dodgers will also join Major League Baseball in celebrating Jackie Robinson Day on April 15, when they host the Cincinnati Reds.
The Dodgers' Opening Day matchup against the D-backs will be the fourth season-opening game between the clubs, and the first since 2014. Los Angeles is unbeaten in its three previous Opening Day matchups against Arizona, with the Dodgers defeating the D-backs in 1999 at Dodger Stadium, in 2003 at Chase Field (then Bank One Ballpark) and in 2014 in Sydney, Australia.
With a home slate filled with rivalries, holidays and promotions (to be announced at a later date), Dodger fans are encouraged to visit Dodgers.com/SeasonTickets for information on 2019 Season Tickets, which will go on sale August 27 and include 2018 Postseason rights.
