As has been the case for the last few years, Major League Baseball released its entire schedule for 2017 Wednesday afternoon.

You’re probably not thinking 2017 yet, as the Cubs have plenty of unfinished business to take care of yet in 2016. Nevertheless, if you’re thinking ahead to next year and where the Cubs will open the season and where they’ll take road trips, here’s your first look.

The Cubs are slated to open the season against the Cardinals in St. Louis Monday, April 3, the first time the Cubs have opened the season in St. Louis since 1986. They’ll then play the Brewers at Milwaukee before beginning the home season at Wrigley Field Monday, April 10 against the Dodgers. 2017 will be the first time since 1963 that the Dodgers will be the Cubs’ Wrigley-opening opponent.

In 2017, the Cubs’ interleague games will be against the American League East. They’ll face the Tampa Bay Rays, Joe Maddon’s former team, both at Wrigley and at the Trop. It’ll be the Cubs’ first visit to Tampa since 2008.

The Cubs will also visit Baltimore to play the Orioles. That’ll be the first time the Cubs have been at Camden Yards since 2003.

They’ll finish the regular season at home against the Reds Sunday, October 1.

Here’s the complete schedule. Note that these dates are still tentative and subject to change. Some game times have been set; I’ll add more to this post when they are available (and remember, as of now, mid-September, they’re all still subject to change). All times Central. Home games in boldface.
