Dodgers to play home doubleheaders for first time since 1999
The Los Angeles Dodgers will play split doubleheaders against the Arizona Diamondbacks May 17 and Sept. 20 at Dodger Stadium under the revised schedule released Wednesday by Major League Baseball.
The regular season has been extended by three days to accommodate games originally scheduled for March 31–April 7, but not played because of the major league owners’ lockout of the players. The regular season will now conclude Oct. 5.
The Dodgers will conclude the regular season with six games against the Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium, three originally scheduled for Sept. 30–Oct. 2 and the other three originally scheduled as part of the four-game season-opening series.
The May 17 doubleheader will be the first at Dodger Stadium since July 22, 1999.
The Dodgers are scheduled to open their season April 8 at Colorado and play their home opener April 14 against the Cincinnati Reds.
Single-game tickets will be available for public purchase on Friday. Tickets for opening day will be available for public purchase on March 24.
