If Angels fans didn't get enough of Wrigley Field over Fathers' Day weekend in 2010, they will get another chance to visit the Friendly Confines next season as MLB released its preliminary schedule for next season on Thursday.
The second oldest ballpark in the majors will once again play host to the Halos in 2013, one of three road trips that fans looking to travel should seriously consider this year.
The others are Cincinnati and Houston, as the Astros move to the AL West and will have the traditional slate of 19 contests against division opponents.
Meanwhile, the Angels will once again make the trek to Great American Ballpark, but with a new twist: the first interleague Opening Day in major league history in the city that traditionally hosted the first contest of the year before the advent of Sunday night openers and trips to Japan.
Other interesting wrinkles with two 15-team leagues and continuous interleague series is a reduction of the number of games against the Dodgers from six games to four, with the contests coming in consecutive two-game sets beginning on Memorial Day at Chavez Ravine.
The other casualty of the new scheduling was the potential for multiple series against non-divisional opponents within the American League. That leaves the Angels with just one visit both home and away to places like Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park.
Lastly, the Angels will get their first glimpse of the St. Louis Cardinals at Angel Stadium during a three-game set that finishes on July 4th. In three previous interleague series with the Redbirds, the Angels had traveled to Busch Stadium, most recently in 2010.
