D-backs to host Father’s Day and Fourth of July games in 2020
The MLB announced the 2020 regular season schedule on Monday, including a few signature series next season for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Chase Field will host ball games on Father’s Day and the Fourth of July in 2020 and the D-backs will welcome the Atlanta Braves on Opening Weekend March 26-29.
The D-backs will start the season at Chase Field for the 16th time in its 23-year history.
They started the 2019 season on the road against the Dodgers, the first time Arizona started the season on the road in America since opening up against the Rockies at Coors Field in 2011.
In 2014, the D-backs first game was against the Dodgers in Sydney, Australia.
Holiday games are scheduled at Chase Field on Father’s Day against the Milwaukee Brewers and on the Fourth of July against the Cincinnati Reds.
Arizona is also reportedly scheduled to participate in an international series against the San Diego Padres on April 18-19.
In May, Bob Nightengale of USA Today tweeted that the two teams agreed to play a series in Mexico City.

The D-backs have played a league-high 11 times in Mexico, including two spring training games against the Colorado Rockies in Monterrey in 2019.
Other notable series at Chase Field include Interleague matchups against the Astros, Tigers, Twins and Royals and weekend home series against the Cubs, Dodgers and Cardinals.
The MLB All-Star Game will be held at Dodger Stadium on July 14.
