The Houston Astros announced their 2016 Spring Training schedule, which includes 28 games in Florida and two exhibition games at Minute Maid Park.

The Astros will play their 32nd and final season in Kissimmee, FL at Osceola County Stadium complex, as the team plans to join the Washington Nationals at a new joint complex in West Palm Beach in 2017. There will be 13 home games in Kissimmee and 30 exhibition games overall -- including two games against the Milwaukee Brewers at Minute Maid Park.

No surprise the Astros and Brewers teamed up after the Astros assistant general manager David Stearns moved on to take the Brewers' general manager position.

The Astros start the 2016 Grapefruit League season on Thursday, March 3 vs. the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, FL. Houston’s home opener will be on Friday, March 4 at 1 p.m. ET vs. the St. Louis Cardinals at Osceola County Stadium. The home opener will be the first of three straight weekend home games for the Astros as they will also host the NL Champion New York Mets on Sat., March 5 (1 p.m.), and the AL East Champion Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, March 6 (1 p.m.). The Astros will also host the Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers and Washington Nationals during the Spring.

Dates are subject to change.
