The Braves and Twins will meet in Atlanta for the first time since the 1991 World Series.

The Atlanta Braves will start and end their 2013 campaign with series against NL East rival Philadelphia, as the 2013 MLB schedule was announced on Wednesday. In addition, Atlanta will open the season at Turner Field for only the third time in nine years.

2013 will also be the first Opening Day since 1995 that the Braves will be without retiring All-Star Chipper Jones. Coincidentally, Atlanta will travel to Kansas City, the one park Jones had never played in until the 2012 All-Star Game, and also welcome the Minnesota Twins back to Atlanta for the first time since the 1991 World Series. The Twins have never played at Turner Field, which opened in 1996.

Houston's move from the NL Central to the AL West will allow for Interleague games to be played throughout the year between the two 15-team leagues. Atlanta will host K.C. and also travel to Kauffman Stadium, and play two two-game series both at and at home against Toronto in May. Also on the docket for Interleague play will be the Tigers and White Sox.
