The Pittsburgh Pirates released their 2017 schedule on Wednesday. They will begin the season April 3rd on the road in Boston at historic Fenway Park. The home opener will be four days later against the Atlanta Braves.

This will be just the second time the Pirates visit Fenway Park. They played a three-game series against the Red Sox back in 2005.

Interleague games next year include the New York Yankees visiting the Pirates for three games from April 21-23. That will be the Yankees second trip to PNC Park, first playing there in 2008. The Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles also visit PNC Park, while the Pirates go on the road against the Orioles, Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays.

The schedule wraps up on October 1st, the last game of a four-game series in Washington.

  1. Bucco’s road trip 2017 already in the works in Aug Detroit on Thursday for 1:00 start then onto Toronto for the weekend.

  2. I hope our starting rotation is Taillon, Cole, Glasnow, Brault, and Kuhl at the start of the 2017 season, or that opening series in Boston could get ugly. That team can hit, even minus David Ortiz.

  3. Overall this seems like a good schedule. Three observations:

    1. Only 2 trips west of the Central Time Zone.
    2. Only one road trip longer than 7 games (the second West Coast trip is 9 games, but you have to do that to limit number of trips out west).
    3. The end of April and beginning of May could be tough with 14 of 17 games on the road (of course they’ve been playing better on the road than at home, so who knows?).

  4. Kind of a shame they play the Red Sox and Yankees in April instead of in the middle of the summer when it’s easier for many to travel. On the positive side, that Yankees series should fill PNC during a time when crowds might typically be in the teens.

  5. I see 94 – 96 wins, 94 if Hutchison wins 16, 96 if he wins 18, hope he and the team wins more, fingers crossed… I’m not sure anymore when I’m kidding or not 🙂 🙂 🙂
