Regular season schedule
Following Spring Training, the Dodgers’ season begins with an Opening Day matchup at Dodger Stadium against the Arizona Diamondbacks on March 30. It’s the first time they will play a season opener at home since 2020.
Every team will now play 46 Interleague games, which is an increase from 20, as every team will face each other at least once during the season. As a result, clubs will only play 52 divisional games, down from the usual 76.
The schedule finishes with a seven-game road trip against the Rockies and Giants, which begins with a split doubleheader at Coors Field on Sept. 26, 2023.
The final day of the 2023 MLB regular season is Sunday, Oct. 1.
