The Mets and Yankees are scheduled to play each other six times during the 2020 season, but they will meet sooner than the August 21 Subway Series opener. They will start exhibition play against each other on July 18 at 7:10 p.m. and play again July 19 at 7:05 p.m. The former game will take place at Citi Field, while the latter will be at Yankee Stadium. Both games will be broadcast on both SNY and YES, and WCBS 880 will carry them on the radio.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman hinted in June that the Mets would be a logical choice to play once exhibition games got underway, given how close they are to each other. The Yankees’ final game will be against the Phillies, whereas the Mets have yet to schedule their third and final game of camp.

Given the state of testing in Major League Baseball and the amount of positive cases both around the country and in baseball things are constantly in flux but for now baseball is moving forward.

It was also reported today that the two teams will play each other on September 11, 2021, in remembrance of the 20th anniversary of the horrific September 11 attack. It will be the first time the two teams from New York will face each other on that date.
