SYRACUSE, N.Y. - After a one-year hiatus thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the Syracuse Mets are returning to action this summer, announcing its 2021 season schedule, Thursday.

The Mets will open up play on April 6 at the Lehigh Valley IronPigs before returning to NBT Bank Stadium for its home opener on April 13 against the Buffalo Bisons.

It will be a 142-game regular season, up from 140 games the previous two seasons, and Syracuse will only play its divisional opponents.

The Northeastern Division is made up of Syracuse, Buffalo, Lehigh Valley, the Rochester Red Wings, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, and Worcester Red Sox.

To cut down on travel, teams will play six-game series against each opponent at at time.

The Mets will play 70 games at home and 72 games on the road this upcoming season, with Buffalo their most frequent opponent with 36 games against.

The season will take place over a 167-day stretch with teams getting every Monday off.

The Mets are working with state and local health officials in order to plan for a safe return of fans to the stadium, but no policy has been announced at this time.

The regular season will conclude on September 19.
