October 1, 2019 - Carolina League (CarL) - Frederick Keys News Release

FREDERICK, MD -The Frederick Keys are excited to announce their schedule for the 2020 Carolina League season. This includes new weekday start times for the first half of the year, over 30 Friday-Sunday dates and nearly 80 games against divisional opponents.

The Frederick Keys will kickoff the 2019 home schedule on Thursday, April 16 when the Myrtle Beach Pelicans come to town as part of a seven-game homestand. Once again, the Keys home schedule wraps up on Labor Day against the Carolina Mudcats. Of the team's 70 home games, 33 are Friday-Sunday dates.

One change beginning in 2020, is the start of first half weekday games at 6:30 p.m. These new Monday-Friday start times will run from April 16-June 17. Starting on Tuesday June 30, weekday games shift back to 7:00 p.m. for the duration of the year.

"Moving Monday-Friday start times up 30 minutes will make things easier on families to come out for weekday baseball at Nymeo Field," said Keys General Manager Dave Ziedelis. "During the school year, we want to make sure everyone can get home at a more reasonable time."

To go with earlier week day starts, the Keys will play both of their weekend April games at 1 p.m. Starting in May, Saturday start times shift back to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday games remain at 1 p.m. (with the exception of Sunday, September 6). Frederick will play 11 a.m. home games on April 30, May 7 and June 4 and noon games on July 13, July 23 and September 7.

Going by month, the Keys play their most games at home in May (14) with 13 home tilts scheduled for June, July and August. In April, the Keys play 10 home games, while the final seven regular season games come in September.

The Keys play 79 divisional games in 2020, with 36 home games against divisional opponents and the remaining 34 against the CL South.

In 2020, the Keys most common opponent is Fredericksburg (formerly the Potomac Nationals) with the two sides meeting 23 times next season (13 taking place in Frederick). The Keys will also get healthy doses of Wilmington (19 games) and Salem (19 games) to go along with 18 games against Lynchburg.
