Here are some scheduling oddities from the 2004 season
The Devil Rays and the Yankees met each Tuesday and Wednesday for three straight weeks in late March and early April, in three ballparks ( Tokyo Dome, Tropicana Field and Yankee Stadium).
The Expos didn't play in Montreal from June 25 through July 22.
The Dodgers played only three regular-season games outside California after Sept. 5.
The Blue Jays' 19 games against the Yankees were all after July 21.
The Brewers began and ended the season with a four-game series in St. Louis. They played there only twice the rest of the year.
