Orioles open 2012 season at home

The Orioles won't start the 2012 season at Tropicana Field. That's known as breaking news.

They're back home for a three-game series against the Twins that begins on April 6 - exactly 20 years after Camden Yards first opened. The Yankees will follow the Twins to Baltimore.

As for interleague play, the Phillies will make a weekend trip to Camden Yards on June 8-10, followed by a mid-week visit by the Pirates on June 12-14. The Orioles also will continue their home-and-home series with the Nationals, and they'll travel to Atlanta on June 15-17 and New York from June 18-20 to face the Mets.

The Phillies, Pirates and Mets. Prepare for a lot of World Series flashbacks.

Too bad the Dodgers aren't on the schedule.

The Orioles will play 17 home games in August, their busiest month at Camden Yards. They'll play 42 of the 85 games prior to the All-Star break at Camden Yards.

The Orioles' first road trip is a 10-game, three-city journey to Toronto, Chicago and Los Angeles from April 13-22.

The season concludes with a three-game series at Tampa Bay on Oct. 1-3.

Here's the complete schedule. See if you can memorize it and ditch the refrigerator magnet:
