While the 2017 season is still underway, the fading Seattle Mariners and their fans may have to start looking ahead to the dreaded "next year."

The club announced its 2018 schedule which has them opening the season at home at Safeco Field for just the second time time in the last 10 years when they host the Cleveland Indians on a Thursday night on March 29, at 7:10 p.m.

The Mariners begin the year with only eight home games in the entire month of April.
