The Orioles announced their 2022 spring training schedule on Wednesday, and they’ll open Grapefruit League play against the New York Yankees on February 26th at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota. They’ll play 16 games in Sarasota and are scheduled to conclude the exhibition season on March 27th when they play split-squad games. They’ll play the Pittsburgh Pirates at home while also visiting Toronto.
Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report on February 15th, one day after the Super Bowl. The full squad is scheduled to report on February 20th.
The Orioles will play nine teams at home — their four American League East opponents, the Yankees, Blue Jays, Red Sox and Rays; Detroit and Minnesota, from the AL Central; Atlanta and Philadelphia, from the National League East; and Pittsburgh, from the NL Central.
They’ll play at home against Pittsburgh, which plays in nearby Bradenton, three times, and Boston, Tampa Bay, Detroit, Minnesota and Philadelphia twice.
The Orioles will visit the Yankees, Red Sox, Braves, Pirates, Twins, Rays and Phillies twice apiece, and play at Toronto and Detroit once.
There are three split-squad dates. Besides March 27th, they’ll play Detroit at home and at Tampa Bay on March 9th, and play Atlanta at home and at Pittsburgh on March 18th.
The only open date on the spring training schedule is March 8th.
