We are about to wrap up the 2021 season. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if it would happen as planned. But, thankfully it did. We got to see some great baseball in Frisco this year and some great prospects we look forward to seeing in the future. The 2022 season schedule is released, so let’s take a look.

The RoughRiders are slated to play a 138-game schedule in 2022, which includes 69 home dates at Riders Field. The season kicks off on April 8th versus the Arkansas Travelers (a Seattle Mariners affiliate).

As was the case during the 2021 season, the six-game series format is back in 2022 with two exceptions. Opening Weekend (April 8th – 10th) and the first weekend after the All-Star Break (July 22nd – 24th), both against theTravelers, will be three-game series.

From May 10th – 15th, Frisco heads north to play the Tulsa Drillers (a Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate) for the first time since 2019. It’s one of two meetings between the Riders and the Drillers, as Frisco welcomes Tulsa into Riders Field from September 6th – 11th.

From May 31st – June 5th, the Riders hit the road to play the Wichita Wind Surge (a Minnesota Twins affiliate) for the first time in franchise history. Wichita will also come to Frisco from August 23rd – 28th.

The Corpus Christi Hooks (a Houston Astros affiliate) visits Riders Field to finish off the end of June and start July from June 28th – July 3rd. The first three days of July are Stars and Stripes Weekend with fireworks shows each day.

For the first time since 2019, the season includes an All-Star Break, which takes place from July 18th – 21st and splits the season into two. The first half consists of 87 games and the second half is comprised of 51 games.

All totaled, Frisco will host 26 fireworks shows over the course of the season. As in years past, fireworks shows will occur every Friday and Saturday night, as well as on Sunday, July 3rd (Stars and Stripes Weekend), and Sunday, September 11th (Fan Appreciation Night/final home game of the season).

Game times for the 2022 season will be announced at a later date.
