Make your plans for next year!

It’s August, and the 2021 season is winding down. While it’s still several months until the 2022 season will commence, Major League Baseball made its usual early announcement of the league-wide schedule for next year Wednesday afternoon, and so I present to you the Cubs schedule for 2022.

The Cubs will face AL East teams in interleague play in 2022. If MLB had gone on normal interleague rotation, the Cubs would have faced AL West squads in 2022, as they did in 2016 and 2019. This appears to be a “makeup” for the NL Central/AL East matchups (and other similar matchups) missed in 2020.

Also, interestingly, the Cubs have a lot of out-of-the-division games in September. Of 28 games after September 1, only 13 are vs. NL Central rivals, and none against the Brewers — but two home series against the Reds.

Lastly, there are no homestands longer than seven games, and only one road trip longer than that, nine games at the end of August/beginning of September. And yes, that’s a two-game “homestand” in July against the Pirates.

Anyway, here are all the Cubs dates for 2022 and a note that at this time, these dates are tentative. When game times are available I’ll add them. As always, all times Central. Home games in boldface.
