DETROIT -- The Tigers' home opener on April 4 will be a matinee as usual. So will most of their home games until May.

The club has released its game times for the upcoming season, and as expected, they include a heavy dose of day games for the opening month as the Tigers try to contend with the unpredictable spring weather in Michigan.

DETROIT -- The Tigers' home opener on April 4 will be a matinee as usual. So will most of their home games until May.

The club has released its game times for the upcoming season, and as expected, they include a heavy dose of day games for the opening month as the Tigers try to contend with the unpredictable spring weather in Michigan.

Detroit will open its season with a week-long road trip to Toronto and New York before heading to Comerica Park. The Tigers will open their home slate on April 4 with a 1:10 p.m. ET game against the Royals. The next day is an open date in case of a weather postponement, followed by 1:10 starts against Kansas City on April 6-7.

Tigers' 2019 regular-season schedule

The Tigers have nine more April home games. They'll host the Indians for three consecutive 1:10 starts April 9-11, then welcome the Pirates for 6:40 starts April 16-17. Detroit's first 7:10 home game is set for April 19 against the White Sox; the other three games of that series are scheduled for 1:10.

Once the Tigers get through April, their home schedule settles into a routine, with 7:10 and 1:10 starts during the week, 4:10 and 6:10 starts on Saturdays and 1:10 matinees on Sundays. They'll resume their 6:40 starts for four weeknight games in September against the Yankees and Twins, plus a 4:10 Monday matinee to conclude a wraparound series against the Orioles on Sept. 16.

Among the holiday home games is a 1:10 Labor Day matinee against the Twins on Sept. 2.

Season ticket packages are on sale now; more information is available at tigers.com/seasons or by calling or texting 313-471-BALL. Opening Day suite packages are also currently available.
