For the first time since 2009, Bay Area Angels’ fans finally get a chance to see the Halos outside of O.co Coliseum.
Major League Baseball released its 2015 schedule Monday which includes AL West teams squaring off against the NL West. Aside from hosting interleague matchups with Arizona, Colorado, and San Diego, the Angels visit Coors Field in Denver and Chase Field in Arizona.

The Angels call downtown San Francisco home from June 28-May 3. After visiting Oakland for three games, Los Angeles start a weekend set at AT&T Park, their first since sweeping the Giants in mid-June 2009.
The annual Freeway Series extends to six games with peculiarly a schedule series from Sept. 7-9 at Angel Stadium. The teams have never met so late in the season and, if it’s anything like this season, each game will have playoff implications.
Spring Training extends into April, giving more time for last-second roster additions. As a result, the Angels’ season starts on April 6 in Seattle and ends Oct. 4 in Texas. The home opener is April 10 against Kansas City.
In looking at their 2014 schedule it’s easy to see that the Halos shouldered on the Majors’ most burdensome travel schedules. From July 29-August 6 they traveled to Baltimore, Tampa Bay, and Los Angeles without a day off. They’re in the midst of a road trip to Houston, Minnesota, and Texas when the only off day became a makeup game in Cleveland without a scheduled day off until Sept. 25.
Next year’s offers a more favorable itinerary. Every series, aside from one or two, is segregated by region or division. They won’t flip-flop across the country this time around.
