The Angels will open their 60th major league season with a seven-game trip to Houston and Texas, marking the fourth straight year they’ll have opened on the road, and 16 of their 20 interleague games in 2020 will be against teams from the National League East.

The 2020 season opener will be on March 26 in Minute Maid Park, a game that could take on added intrigue and significance if the Angels can sign hard-throwing Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole as a free agent this winter.

After four games in Houston, the Angels and the Rangers will play the first regular-season games at the new Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on March 31-April 2. The Angels played the first regular-season games at two previous road ballparks — Seattle’s Kingdome in 1977 and Arlington Stadium in 1972.


The home opener in Angel Stadium will be on April 3 against Houston. The annual Freeway Series games against the Dodgers will be on Friday, July 10, and Saturday, July 11, in Anaheim, giving both teams the Sunday before the All-Star break off, and Aug. 25-26 in Dodger Stadium.

The Angels will host the Washington Nationals (May 11-13), Miami Marlins (June 9-10) and New York Mets (Aug. 18-20), and they play road interleague series in Miami (April 14-15), Atlanta (July 3-5) and Philadelphia (July 17-19).

On the 25th anniversary of the most notorious work stoppage in sports, The Times takes a look a the impact the 1994 Major League Baseball strike had on the game, its players and its fans.

The last time the Angels played in Citizens Bank Park in 2014, thousands of fans from Angels center fielder Mike Trout’s hometown of Millville, N.J., which is about 45 miles south of Philadelphia, attended the games.

The longest road trip of the 2020 season will be a 10-day, eight-game trip to Detroit, Miami and Houston from April 10-19. During a 29-day stretch from Aug. 13-Sept. 10, the Angels will play just three games outside of Southern California.
