O's open on the road next year

This tidbit really caught my eye.

For just the sixth time in the past 37 years, the Orioles will start a baseball season on the road. The final 2007 schedule, which will be released later this month, has the Orioles opening the season against the Minnesota Twins at the Metrodome on April 2, a team official confirmed.

The Orioles haven't been scheduled to start the season on the road in a non-strike year since 1980 when the club got things started in Chicago. In 1990 and 1995, the Orioles also opened on the road, but the schedules in both of those seasons were altered due to strike situations.

I wonder how these things are determined? I always assumed, since the O's opened at home and finished away every single year, that it was a seniority thing....maybe the oldest clubs got their preference? The Yankees always open on the road and close at home. Weird.
