The Phillies will begin and end the 2015 season at Citizens Bank Park, and the schedule is highlighted by trips to both Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium.

Boston will visit Philadelphia on April 6 to begin the season, according to a tentative schedule distributed to all major-league clubs. The two teams will play April 8 and 9 with a built-in day off April 7. The Phillies will travel to Boston for three games Sept. 4-6.

They will make their first trip to Yankee Stadium since 2010 on June 22-24. The interleague schedule includes two two-game home-and-home series vs. Baltimore and Toronto plus three home July games against Tampa Bay.

The season concludes Oct. 4 with Miami at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies have two 10-game homestands May 8-17 and Sept. 7-16. Their longest road trip, from July 3-12 to Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco, preceds the all-star break. Next year's All-Star Game is in Cincinnati.

Citizens Bank Park will be dormant on Memorial Day and July 4. The Phillies play at home against Atlanta on Labor Day. The busiest month at home is June with 16 home dates.
