The Dodgers’ tentative spring training schedule for 2022 includes 33 games in 32 days, beginning against the Cubs in Mesa, Arizona and concluding with the Freeway Series ending at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Major League Baseball unveiled the full 2022 spring training schedule on Wednesday, with every team starting on Saturday, February 26 in either the Cactus League in Arizona or the Grapefruit League in Florida.
Sloan Park in Mesa is the site of the Dodgers’ first spring contest, on the road against the Cubs, and a solid day all around for baseball and Italian beef enthusiasts.
The Dodgers’ first home game is Sunday, February 27 against the Padres, one of 17 games for Los Angeles at Camelback Ranch. Fifteen of those are Dodgers home games, plus two “road” games against the White Sox (March 10 and March 19), with whom the Dodgers share the facility.
The 15 teams in the Cactus League are relatively close together, such that it doesn’t take terribly long to get from one park to another in the greater Phoenix area. But if you’re looking for a trip to watch Dodgers games with minimal travel, the club plays five games at Camelback Ranch in a six-day stretch from March 7-12.
Unlike this season, when COVID-19 protocols eliminated split-squad games, two games in one day is back for 2021. The Dodgers have three such days on the schedule — March 5 against the White Sox and at the Rangers, March 13 at Cleveland and at the Padres, and March 21 at the Reds and at the Rockies.
Two off days — March 8 and March 16 — mean that for the Arizona portion of the schedule, the Dodgers play 30 games in 29 days, concluding with a home game against the Reds at Camelback Ranch on March 26.
The annual Freeway Series against the Angels begins on Sunday, March 27, with the first game in Anaheim and the final two games at Dodger Stadium. That leaves one off day before opening day of the regular season, which for the Dodgers is at home against the Rockies on Thursday, March 31.
