SALEM, Va. – Baseball fans now have a reason to celebrate.

The Salem Red Sox just announced their 2021 schedule after an entire year of no play due to COVID-19.

The season will start on Tuesday, May 4 with the Red Sox traveling to play the Delmarva Shorebirds.

The six-game road trip will start a 120-game slate, featuring 20 series, and will end Sept. 19.

The schedule has been slightly reduced to make up for the late start to spring training and to also help the team enforce social distancing and COVID-19 safety measures for players, staff and fans.

Opening Day in Salem begins with a Battle for 460 against the Lynchburg Hillcats on Tuesday, May 11.

The 2021 home schedule features a 10-weekend series that include Memorial Day weekend, a league-wide off-day every Monday and six games that will run Tuesday through Sunday.
