The 2023 Chicago Cubs schedule is unlike any before itVincent Pariseon August 25, 2022 at 3:41 pm

The Chicago Cubs and the rest of Major League Baseball released their schedules for 2023 on Wednesday. There is something new about this schedule that has never happened before in the history of the league.

For the first time ever, all 30 teams are going to play against all 30 teams. The Chicago Cubs are going to play some teams that they haven’t played very often in their history, including those American League East teams that they have played in 2022.

Everyone was excited about seeing the Chicago Cubs play at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park. They were equally as excited to see the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox at Wrigley Field. Now, some of those great moments are going to happen more often.

Of course, in addition to games like that, they will still have some of their normalcies involved as well. They will still get their healthy helping of National League Central Division opponents as well. They will also still see other great NL teams outside of the division like the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves.

The Chicago Cubs 2023 schedule is unlike any that ever came before it in history.

The Crosstown Classic between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox will still exist too as each team will host the other for two games at their park. It is a great fan-driven rivalry that is sure to be a highlight of the summer.

Get on board!

All of the things that made the old schedules great are still there plus some new wrinkles that are going to make it so much fun. With a schedule like this, the competitive balance around the league will be much improved.

The first game of the season for the Chicago Cubs will also be their home opener. Opening Day at Wrigley Field is on March 30th as the Cubs will take on the Milwaukee Brewers. It will begin a three-game series against one of their biggest rivals.

Their first random American League series will be about a week later when they play the Texas Rangers at home. It is strange to see a schedule like this but it will be better for the league over the long haul.

One of the schedule’s highlights for the Cubs is the two-game series that they will play in London against the St. Louis Cardinals. Those games will take place on June 24th and June 25th. It is sure to be a spectacular scene for Major League Baseball.

The Cubs aren’t going to be world beaters in 2023 but they should be wildly improved from what we’ve seen from them in 2021 and 2022. A big offseason is upon them and that will dramatically increase the excitement for this new type of schedule.
