The Royals and Major League Baseball released their 2021 regular season schedule and the Royals have 19 daytime weekend home games on the schedule.

Start times

First, lets talk overall start times. All 81 home games will start at ten minutes after the hour.

All weeknight games will begin at 7:10 PM CDT. Eight of nine weekday afternoon games will start at 1:10 PM CST, the exception being opening day at Kauffman Stadium which is slated to start at 3:10 PM CDT.

Saturday night home games, the bulk of which are scheduled after the All-Star break will begin at 6:10 PM CDT. All Sunday afternoon contests with the exception of the season finale will start at 1:10 PM CDT.

The season finale on Sunday, October 3 will start at 2:10 PM CDT.

Weekend Day Games

The Royals will play 19 weekend day games at the K this season; which is great for people with little ones who have a harder time staying up late. Or even those of us who love day baseball.

As I mentioned earlier all Sunday games at the K will start at 1:10 PM CDT. That's great, but I always leave Sunday afternoon ball games feeling like the weekend is over. So I'd prefer to go on Saturday.

This season there are six Saturday day games scheduled. All before the All-Star break. Two April games, one on April 3 vs. Texas, and one on April 17 vs. Toronto. Both are set for 1:10 PM CDT. Then as we shift into May and June there are games on May 22 vs. Detroit, June 5 vs. Minnesota, June 19 vs. Boston, and July 3 vs. Minnesota. All will start at 3:10 PM CDT.
