The Washington Nationals - in conjunction with Major League Baseball - announced their 2022 schedule on Wednesday. The 18th season of Nationals baseball will commence with an Opening Day matchup against the New York Mets at Citi Field on March 31st. Opening Day 2022 will mark the sixth time the Nationals (2005-pres.) have faced the Mets on Opening Day. Washington's initial road trip will feature three games against the Mets before the home opener at Nationals Park against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 4th.

Washington's first homestand will include a two-game series against the Phillies from April 4th-6th and a four-game series against the New York Mets, April 7th-10th. Washington will host 12 homestands - with two of least 10 games - and 13 weekend series during the 2022 season.

While the Nationals play at New York (NL) on Memorial Day (May 30th), the weekend will feature a visit from the Colorado Rockies, May 26th-29th. The Nationals will host the Miami Marlins for a four-game weekend series, July 1st-4th that will feature the annual Fourth of July game at Nationals Park.

The Nationals will welcome the Houston Astros (May 13th-15th), Seattle Mariners (July. 12th-13th), and Oakland Athletics (Aug. 30th-Sept. 1st) to Nationals Park. The visit from the Athletics will mark their first visit to Nationals Park since the stadium opened in 2008.
