The 2013 MLB Schedule has been officially released, and the Rangers are going to open on the road for the first time in a few years, kicking off the season with a three game set in Houston on April 2-4. A PDF of the complete schedule is available here.
We have this interesting note regarding the breakdown of games:
In all the Rangers will play 20 games against NL teams, 76 against the four teams in the American League West and 66 against the other 10 AL teams.
That's 19 games apiece against Houston, Anaheim, Seattle, and Oakland, which seems like a lot, although that may just be because there are now four teams we're playing that many games against, compared to just three.
The Astros drew 23K for the second game of the season this year, and 14K for the third game of the season, and those were both on weekends. Thus, I'm thinking that April 3 or April 4 would be a good time to have an LSB event at Minute Maid Park, where we could all come out and sit together and cheer on the Rangers.
If you'd be interested in attending an LSB event in Houston during the opening series, please say so in the comments, so I can gauge interest.
