Play ball! 

As we stand right now, there will be baseball this season at Miller Park starting on July 24 at 6:10 PM on ESPN as the Brewers open up their season in the Windy City against their heated rival, the Chicago Cubs. This will be one of the two times the Crew will head to Wrigley Field in the 60-game season. Meanwhile, the Cubbies will only head up to Miller Park once in the season for a four-game series. The other seven games between the two teams will be in Wrigleyville.

That is the case for every divisional opponent for the Crew. They will play each the Cubs, Cardinals, Pirates, and Reds 10 times, but they will not play an even amount of games at home against every team in the NL Central. As mentioned before, the Brewers will host the Cubs only three times, but they only play four games in St. Louis while hosting six. Against the Reds, the Brewers host six games of the 10-game season series, while playing six games at PNC Park against Pittsburgh. It's certainly a flawed system, but this is a flawed season. 

The other 20 games will be made up of games against teams in the same geographical region. A home-and-home series of four total games against the Tigers and White Sox, a home-and-home series against the Twins totaling six games, three games in Cleveland against the Indians, and three games of hosting the Kansas City Royals. 

One of the toughest stretches for the Brewers will come in their final 16 games as they host the Cubs, Cardinals, and Royals in a nine-game homestand, but then wrap up the season in Cincinnati for a three-game set, and conclude the regular season at Busch Stadium in a pivotal four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals. 

Here is the full schedule:

Game on. #ThisIsMyCrew
