In the Baltimore Orioles 2016 spring training schedule we’ve posted, the team will face eight different opponents during their 16-game home Grapefruit League campaign. The Orioles will host the Minnesota Twins and the Braves three times each and the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Pittsburgh Pirates twice each. The Orioles will also square off against the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies once each at Ed Smith Stadium.
We expect additions to this schedule; there are no games posted for April 1 and 2 (before the regular-season starts), and game times for away games are missing as well.
The Baltimore Orioles 2016 spring training schedule begins on the road and opens at home on Wednesday, March 2, with a 1:05 p.m. game against the Braves at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota. The Grapefruit League season will conclude with the club’s home-finale on Thursday, March 31, against the Braves. The 2016 season marks the seventh consecutive Spring Training season for the Orioles in Sarasota, and the sixth at renovated Ed Smith Stadium.
Additionally, the Orioles will play 16 games on the road during the spring training season. The team will make three trips to play the Twins; two trips to play the Rays, Blue Jays, Phillies, Red Sox, Yankees, and Pirates; and one trip to play the Braves.
Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Ed Smith Stadium for camp on Thursday, February 18, with their first workout set for the following day.
