OAKLAND – The A’s will break some recent Opening Day tradition next season.

They’ll begin the 2014 campaign by hosting the Cleveland Indians on March 31, snapping a string of four straight years in which they’ve played Seattle in their opener. That three-game series also marks the earliest home opener in the club’s Oakland history.

The Bay Bridge Series against the Giants will again be played in one four-game chunk, with the A’s hosting two games July 7-8 followed by two games at AT&T Park on July 9-10.

Oakland faces the National League East in interleague play, hosting the Washington Nationals (May 9-11), the New York Mets (Aug. 19-20) and the Philadelphia Phillies (Sept. 19-21). The A’s travel to face the Mets (June 24-25), the Miami Marlins (June 27-29) and the Atlanta Braves (Aug. 15-17).

The New York Yankees visit the Coliseum for a Father’s Day weekend series June 13-15 that includes a fireworks night on the 13th. Boston plays a four-game series at the Coliseum on June 19-22.

It’s a heavy holiday home schedule as the A’s are at the Coliseum on Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day.

The end of the season features a favorable stretch with the A’s playing 15 of 22 at home for one period, though they finish the regular season with a four-game series at Texas on Sept. 25-28.
