Major League Baseball this week delayed the start of the Triple-A season by four weeks, keeping it in line with the schedules for Double-A and both Class-A levels, which now all begin in the first week of May.

The Triple-A Salt Lake Bees will now begin their season on Thursday, May 6 at home against Reno, the start of a 12-game homestand.

The Bees’ schedule was reduced from 142 games to 120, which is split into 20 series of six games each. As part of the newly named Triple-A West (formerly Pacific Coast League), Salt Lake plays 90 games against the four other teams in the West Division (Tacoma, Las Vegas, Sacramento, and Reno).

A quirk of the 2021 season, the six-game series to reduce travel for health and safety reasons, is that the entire Triple-A West has Wednesdays off all season.

Salt Lake ends the season on Tuesday, Sept. 21, on the road at Reno.
