Though much uncertainty remains that Major League Baseball can beat the coronavirus pandemic, it announced its 2020 schedule on Monday.

The Detroit Tigers will open the season on the road against the Cincinnati Reds on July 24. Their first home game at Comerica Park is scheduled for July 27 against the Kansas City Royals.

In 2020, because of the coronavirus pandemic, MLB is scheduling teams by region, playing game within one's division and the corresponding division in the other league.

The Tigers will begin the season with 20 games in 20 days. It is likely every team will have to face at least one of these stretches during the course of a 60-game season, which has been significantly shortened from the traditional 162 games.

The Tigers will host every NL Central team except the Pirates. They play the Cubs at home Aug. 24-26; the Reds and longtime Tiger Nicholas Castellanos on July 31-Aug. 2; the Brewers on Sept. 8-9 and the Cardinals on Aug. 3-4.
