Infographic: 2013 Interleague Schedule

When the Astros got re-aligned into the American League West it was inevitable that interleague play was going to expand to accommodate two 15-team leagues. The newly released 2013 schedule shows just how expanded it is. With the exception of a few Mondays and Thursdays, there is at least one interleague game every day. Every team will travel for ten games and host ten games. The "regional" rivalries were kept intact and will all be played as home-at-home series between May 27 and May 30. There's even a scheduled doubleheader thrown in there.

There is also at least one interleague series every weekend. Unluckily the Astros, Braves, Blue Jays, and Diamondbacks drew short straws and won't host any weekend series. Twelve teams have two weekend series. The chart below shows how many games each team plays and where.

In the tradition of opening their season at home, the Reds will host the Angels to kick off interleague play on April 1.
