TACOMA, WA- The Tacoma Rainiers announced their 2020 home schedule on Thursday, which will be the 61st season of professional baseball at historic Cheney Stadium. The Rainiers are once again scheduled to host 70 Pacific Coast League games across 11 homestands, in what will be the team's 26th campaign as the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners.
The Rainiers will start their season with a five-game series at home beginning with Opening Night on April 9 against the Fresno Grizzlies. The series against Fresno accounts for one of two homestands in April, with a seven-game stay against El Paso and Albuquerque from April 21-27.

In August, the club will play 11 home games, including a four-game series against Pacific Coast League newcomer Wichita (formerly the New Orleans Baby Cakes), whose team name is yet to be determined.
The Rainiers will wrap up the regular season with an eight-game stay from August 31 to September 7, with PCL Conference Playoffs beginning two days later. The Triple-A National Championship Game will take place at Las Vegas Ballpark, home of the Las Vegas Aviators, on Tuesday, September 22, the league announced on Monday.
