Don’t Tell Mom

If you’re a fan of the game, you’ve been dreaming of this day ever since you were little. Some might say it’s bigger than Christmas. Some might even say it’s bigger than their own birthday. Some have never been and then there are some that get to go every year.

That’s right, I’m talking about the one and only Opening Day of baseball. Most people only think about Major League Baseball when talking about opening day but the first day of the season is always exciting no matter how old you are.

Opening Day makes everything better. The smell of peanuts and cracker jacks, the fresh cut grass, and the bright sun is always better on the first day. Granted nobody likes to lose and see their favorite team lose but it sure beats being in class or at work.

The MLB has some intriguing Opening Day match-ups this year. Opening Day 2017 is a mere four days away. The schedule for this year’s opening day is stacked with the Cubs @ Cardinals, Royals @ Twins, Angels @ Athletics and much more.

Baseball is America’s past time and it seems like lately baseball is starting to make somewhat of a comeback. Some of the young stars are starting to make baseball fun again. Players like Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Anthony Rizzo, others bring a young feel to the game. Younger and younger kids are starting to like baseball more and more and its doing helping the game in ways you couldn’t imagine.

Moral of the story is just that, if you have a child, boy or girl, don’t tell mom and have a little fun and take your child to Opening Day. Get them some cotton candy and ice cream in a helmet. See the smile on your kids face and they’ll love you forever. Like they say, anything is better than being at work or school.
