The T-Bones open the season at home on Thursday, May 17 with an interleague game against the New Jersey Jackals, members of the Can-Am League in the Northeast. Following that four-game series, Kansas City welcomes the Gary SouthShore RailCats for three games from May 21-23 to close out a seven-game opening homestand.
