1963 American League Schedule Released

Jan. 30, 1963 - An unusual morning game, a morning-night twin bill, and a record 428 night contests spice the American League baseball schedule announced today. The A.L. will engage in 38 more night games than last season and 52 more nocturnal games than in 1961, when the league expanded from 8 to 10 teams. The morning game is slated for May 30 when Minnesota entertains Washington. The morning-night program will be at Bloomington, Minn., Sept. 2, with Kansas City the visitor. The traditional Presidential opening game is set for April 8, one of the earliest starts in history. On that date, the Washington Senators will host the Baltimore Orioles. The rest of the league gets under way the next day.
