Hello and happy Saturday.
MLB recently revised the Cactus League schedules, which means we now have the definitive preseason schedule for the San Francisco Giants. Feast your eyes!
Here's the Giants' revised Cactus League schedule. Off days March 3 and 20. Opener will be Feb. 28 at 1:05. pic.twitter.com/b7uQrxd2ln— Mark W. Sanchez (@MarkWSanchez) February 12, 2021
A few things of note. The Giants first play a baseball game in just 15 days, when they face the
Anaheim Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Sunday, Feb. 28. They have just two off days all spring. There are no split-squad games. And the traditional home and away Bay Bridge series to end Spring Training is staying in Arizona this year.
