Thought it was later than this but seems this seasons were released in Septemberhttp://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20...632736&c_id=mlb

They are normally provisionally released about now but it's up to individual teams whether they release their own schedule at this stage. The schedule will have been decided but MLB has to get the union ok before the official release.

I am patiently waiting as well for the 2013 schedule.
Seem to remember it will tell you who will play who but not the time of first pitch.
You can work some out like the end of a home stand when a team is going on the road - this will usually be an afternoon game.
Saving up for a NY/Boston/Cooperstown trip in September 2013

Went to Cooperstown May 2011. Lousy weather meant we went 3 successive days to the HOF, which worked out for the best. There is so much to see, and so many detailed exhibits that it would be tiring and frustrating to try and do it in one day.
If you can go for more than one day, it might work out cheaper to buy annual membership - check the website. You also get a quarterly magazine, which they will send to the UK.
Avoid summer holidays if you can. Word has it that Cooperstown gets packed, the HOF gets full of dads trying to interest their kids in baseball history.
Depending how widely you plan to travel in NY state, we found Rochester and Syracuse well worth a visit for AAA games

Been twice, once in 98 when I really didn't follow Baseball, were in the area staying with family friends.
Went back in '05 during the World Series, they had re-vamped the HoF and had great stuff like Schill's bloody sock. Had to be dragged out by the wife at the end of the day as we were meeting people for dinner!
Would go again, it's the kind of place you would find something new every time you went.
Think Albany has a minor league team nearby, maybe Ontario as well which is even nearer to Cooperstown.

As above. Nice town, a bit twee but just about every shop is of interest to the Baseball fan and can hold the wife's interest too!
As well as the museum there is Doubleday Field - The 'home' of baseball (if you don't count Guildford in 1755). There was a college game on when I was there - great fun.
Right next to Doubleday is a pay to play batting cage - well worth a go.
