It’s Opening Day!! Today starts the 2019 Major League Baseball Season!
As my friend Aaron texted me this morning, “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”
This is one of my favorite holidays of the year. The first pitch of the season is scheduled for 1:05pm, and there are a couple of games starting then: The Mets -vs- The Nationals, and Baltimore -vs- The Yankees. Our home town team (and my favorite) The Tigers have first pitch scheduled for 3:37 today, playing in Toronto. They’ll play 4 games there, then go to New York to play the Yankees for 3 games, and then the Tigers have their Home Opener on April 4th, at 1:10pm.
Here’s a link to a fun OPENING DAY GUIDE from MLB.
And, because this is great, here’s a very fun announcement from the Tigers about their Opening Day Lineup. Turn up your volume for this, it’s a terrific homage to all the video baseball games we played back in the day!
Happy Opening Day, y’all! The Tigers are in a rebuilding mode this season, so most folks think it’s a long shot for them to contend for a spot in the playoffs, but there’s always a chance! AND – it should be a fun team to watch, no matter what!
*note – none of these images are mine, they’re all borrowed from the internet!
**Go watch some baseball today. Or turn on the radio and listen to Dan Dickerson announce the Tigers game!
