Baseball Opening Day

Today is Baseball Opening Day! Often hailed as the true beginning of spring, Opening Day is the most important day of the year for baseball lovers across the country. For the next six months, over 750 players on thirty Major League teams will compete in 2,430 games.

Baseball has been revered as America’s National Pastime for over a century. Opening Day is a national event that brings fans together to celebrate the beginning of a new season. In recent years it has also provided an arena for “political pitchers.” Since 1910, every President except Jimmy Carter has thrown a ceremonial first pitch for Opening Day, the All-Star Game, or the World Series.

To celebrate Baseball Opening Day, tune in to watch the game, head outside to throw a few pitches, or invite friends and family over for hotdogs and traditional ballpark snacks. Play ball!

I have waited way too long for opening day.  I LOVE baseball.  And thankfully my team won today!  Go Phillies!
