CLEVELAND — Before playing a single game in 2020, as the league hopes to pull off a shortened season, Major League Baseball announced its 2021 schedule and the Cleveland Indians open next year on the road.

The Indians’ 2021 season will open on the road against the Detroit Tigers on April 1 for a three-game series.

The Tribe will return to Cleveland for the home opener on Monday, April 5 as the team takes on the Kansas City Royals. The home opener will kick off a five-game homestand against the Royals and the Tigers.

For the first time since 2017, the Tribe will play in Cleveland on the Fourth of July, taking on the Houston Astros in a four-game series at Progressive Field.

Between Memorial Day and the end of August, Cleveland will host eight weekends of baseball at Progressive Field with opponents including the Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays, Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox, the Tigers, the Royals and the Astros.

Cleveland will also host two nine-game homestands, one in April and one in August.

Also subject to change is the team's name, which is currently being reviewed and discussed within the organizations after a decades-long attempt by advocates, Native American groups and demonstrators to have the team name changed as well as the former logo Chief Wahoo, which was taken off in-game and on-field apparel and displays in 2018.
