The Los Angeles Dodgers announced their 2016 Spring Training schedule, which has them beginning Cactus League play on March 3 against Camelback Ranch co-tenant Chicago White Sox.
From March 3-20, the Dodgers will play 30 games over 28 days. That includes 17 games at Camelback Ranch; 15 of which are home dates.
Moreover, Los Angeles has three split squad days: home on March 12 against the Chicago Cubs and on the road against the Seattle Mariners; March 20 at home vs. the San Diego Padres and on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers; March 26 home vs. the White Sox and on the road against Seattle.
Both March 12 split-squad games are at night, both on March 20 are day games, and the Dodgers’ road tilt on March 26 is a daytime start with their home game to be played under the lights.
The Dodgers have at least one game throughout the month of March, which gives fans plenty of opportunities to walk the Camelback Ranch grounds that features six practice fields, a walking trail, and a replica Dodger Stadium field.
The Dodgers’ exhibition schedule concludes with a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, beginning March 31. Two of the three games (March 31 and April 1) are 7:10 p.m. PT starts at Dodger Stadium.
Los Angeles then begins their 2016 regular season schedule April 4 in San Diego. Their home opener is April 12 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
